The Comedians - First Edition

Greene’s sweltering tale of political intrigue, assassination and voodoo in 1960s Haiti highlights the brutality of Papa Doc Duvalier’s regime. Duvalier was moved to respond, describing Greene as “A liar, a cretin, a stool-pigeon... unbalanced, sadistic, perverted... a perfect ignoramus... lying to his heart's content... the shame of proud and noble England... a spy... a drug addict... a torturer.” Greene later wrote “the last epithet has always puzzled me.”

First edition, first printing, near fine condition, in a dust jacket in archival acetate cover. 1966.
