Catalogue Note

Greene became deeply disenchanted with his second novel, and as such the book appears in no other editions or reprints than the present example and the first American edition. According to Wobbe, the author remarked that "the title... suggested to him by Clemence Dane, is the only part of the novel he approves of".
