GRAHAM GREENE - BRIGHTON ROCK
A story of a 17-year-old gangster in a seaside town seemed an unlikely idea for a successful novel and later film, but the sick adolescent, PINKIE, was made convincingly evil - to such an extent that men twice his age feared him.
The success of the novel is down to good triumphing over evil, though it is a long time coming. Gripping from first to last, 'Brighton Rock' portrays sexual guilt and moral guilt in a way that mirrors the pre-war years (the book was first published in 1938).
