I have been a fan of Graham Greene’s writing since the time I was sixteen and read “The End of the Affair”. Nothing else perhaps could come close to it in the sense of the modern love story till I read Sputnik Sweetheart, and yet I keep going back to The End of the Affair most times for comfort and solace.
“Across the Bridge” is about homesickness, about a conman, an unnamed narrator and a lot of thrill as the story progresses. In fact, it is quite amazing to see how Greene can fit all of this and more in one short story.
I have always been in awe of his writing skills and more so, about the way he comes through both as a novelist and a short-story writer.
