Résumé

To keep his job, he files bogus reports based on Charles Lambs Tales from Shakespeare and dreams up military installations from vacuum-cleaner designs. Then his stories start coming disturbingly true First published in 1959 against the backdrop of the Cold War, Our Man in Havana remains one of Graham Greenes most widely read novels.
