The Quiet American is Graham Greene’s fictional account of the violence and intrigue of mid twentieth century Vietnam.
Pyle, a young idealistic American has been sent to promote democracy through a mysterious ‘Third Force’, but his naïve optimism starts to cause bloodshed. Fowler, a friend of Pyle, but a Brit and a cynical foreign correspondent, finds it hard to just stand aside and watch without intervening - but even as he does, he wonders why: for the sake of politics or for the sake of love?
Another classic novel from a writer who created some of the most cynical heroes of our times.
