Graham Greene had a long literary career. He started writing before World War II and continued writing until his death in 1991. He gained popularity in the thirties, largely because his style of story telling was straightforward narration, which was easy and enjoyable to read. His career as a journalist contributed to the documentary style of writing that he employed in his novels. His career as a film critic also made him clever at presenting individual scenes and shifting focus from one scene to another. His fascination with religion and his conversion to Catholicism enable him to focus on plots where the protagonist was a sinner in a fallen world.
