The Quiet American.

London: Heinemann, 1955. First edition. A novel written and set at the beginning of the American involvment in Vietnam, Greene explores how the ripples of naive patriotism and neoliberalism impact the global equilibrium. The novel proved a difficult sell in America, where its anti-American undertones were critically disparaged. It saw two film adaptations: one in 1958 that flipped the narrative to present the work as anti-communist; and the most recent in 2002 featuring Michael Caine and Brendan Fraser. Fine in dark blue cloth, and with dust wrapper that shows even toning to spine, and retains publisher's wrap-around band indicating its selection by the Book Society and Daily Mail Book of the Month.
