End of the Affair by Graham Greene
Alex Preston, writing for The Independent, says of the novel, “The End of the Affair is his [Green’s] masterpiece: an astonishing, painfully moving interrogation of the contradictions in a Catholicism he couldn't live without but struggled to live with." Green’s account of the tumultuous affair of Maurice Bendrix and Sarah Miles is a torrid tale of obsession, jealousy, and passion. Greene’s novel would fascinate were that all he covered, but this is a novel of faith ... the battle to believe or not.
