CENTENARY EDITION WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ
Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman, was short of money. His daughter had reached an expensive age - so he accepted Hawthorne's offer of $300-plus a month and became Agent 59200/5, M. I.6's man in Havana. To keep the job, Wormold pretends to recruit sub-agents and sends fake stories. Then the stories start coming disturbingly true...
“'As comical, satirical, atmospherical an"entertainment" as he has given us'”
“'No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene'”
“'He had a sharp nose for trouble and injustice. In Our Man In Havana - a witty send-up of an agent's life - it was Cuba before Castro'”
“Nobody should be anywhere near power who hasn't read (or seen the film of) Our Man in Havana, a powerful satire on the silly world of spying by a man who had experienced it.”

“Graham Greene was a profound and experimental stylist”
