Grahame Greene

To a FRIEND going to MEXICO

Read Grahame Greene's The Power and the Glory before your go. It's the book, along with Gerard Manley Hopkins that made me a Catholic. I became a Catholic the moment I read the last chapter of that book.

Part of modern Mexico's history is the supression of faith and the Catholic Church in early 20th-century Mexico .Grahame Greene is one of the the best of all English writers, and his Power and the Glory is the MOST powerful novel I have ever read.
