Arriving anonymously at a leper colony in the Congo, he is diagnosed as the mental equivalent of a 'burnt-out case'.

    "An unusual story"
    Any additional comments?

    Graham Greene is an excellent writer. I love how his stories have an ending we could never imagine. I can appreciate that his work is not for everyone, but if you are a Greene fan, this is worth a read.

    "Enter the world of leprosy in Africa"

    With clear personal insight, Greene writes brilliantly about the disease leprosy and its impact upon life and its treatment.

    Enjoy!
