Free download ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Graham Greene Free download ¶ May We Borrow Your Husband? 102 Affairs obsessions grand passions and tiny ardours are illuminated in this collection of 12 wry. How titles deceive us One would think judging from the name of this wonderful whimsical wickedly witty and unexpectedly warm collection of stories that they are primarily sexual comedies packed with innuendo and slapstick the kind that were served in the burlesue of the films of the 1960s And then as one begins from the first page and then arrives at the end of 183 pages mesmerised tickled moved and also outraged in a good way the reader realises just how mistaken that thought is For after all the name of the writer of these tales alternately melancholic romantic absurdly comic and even gently stirringly erotic is Greene Graham Greene And so while May We Borrow Your Husband represents a significant literary detour for the dexterous probing incisive storyteller whose interest has always been to uote Browning for the umpteenth time the dangerous edge of things one also realises that these are stories that carry his unmistakable signature that same wistful feeling of wanderlust that same yearning for illicit romance or camaraderie that peerless penchant for etching memorable women commanding honest naive spirited sexually independent and all too real without the slightest stereotypical touch that rugged compassion for the loners and social outcasts trying to fit in and that same devilish sense of humour that makes these stories so unpredictable with each new turn There are longer pieces that are brilliantly sustained by his measured pace and skill in developing complex motives and orchestrating their eually befuddling actions with conviction and clarity there are tiny tales that are only a few pages long but ones that make us feel both tickled and also compel us to think about them for long and then there are those other pieces that blend tragedy and farce so seamlessly into each other that they are both brilliant pitch perfect comic creations and sad even melancholic character portraits at the same time The range of stories their subjects and the breadth of Greene s humour and wit are assuredly dazzling to behold It is near impossible to pick out any specific favourites from this volume But it would suffice to say that everyone of them is special in its own way and every single story offers not only food for thought but also a rollicking gulp of wit intoxicated with drollery The bigger pieces like the title story and the excellently staged tryst in Jamaica have the brevity and concise clarity of his novels the smaller pieces on the other hand lace their sparkling wit with an eually winsome layer of warmth and somewhere in the mix there is a romance a bittersweet one to steal your heart away Take a bow Mr Greene For reminding us like the best of them that short stories can be such wholesome literary delights too

One call tell a great writer from the short stories Graham Greene is a great writer and this is a very good collection of stories about human relations In the opener Greene introduces us to a very devious fairy couple interior designers who seduce a newly wed man from his wife In the funniest story we can have a glimpse at the very strange goings on among the burgers in a provincial German town Overall these stories remind me of Roald Dahl s My Uncle Oswald However Greene is much serious than Dahl and the mood of the book is autumnal The last tale of a fleeting moment between two strangers in Paris is the key story in this book of bittersweet stories about the realization of life s disappointments by an Englishman abroad
