In Search Of A Beginning

(2005)
My Life With Graham Greene
A non fiction book by

 

"A modern classic."
Muriel Spark


Yvonne Cloetta was Graham Greene's companion for almost 32 years. Graham knew the time might come when Yvonne's privacy would be invaded. His advice was that she could either refuse to speak or to 'tell the truth'. This Cloetta has done startlingly eloquently - with the help of family friend and biographer Marie-Francoise Allain. What emerges is the most intimate account of Greene we have. Yvonne reveals the considerate, jovial and tender side of the private Graham Greene. She provides a new perspective on the 'old firm' and his contact with the former secret service boss Kim Philby. In Search of a Beginning is a book to send the reader racing either to reread or to discover the novels of Graham Greene, a writer who truly believed you had to go out and see the world to have anything to write about - which of course made his life more interesting than most. The fact that we can now see his life so intimately constitutes a literary milestone.
