Summary Graham Greene's early books are described as 'Catholic Novels' with his later work falling into political and detective genres. This title argues that this is a false dichotomy created by a narrowly prescriptive understanding of the Catholic genre and obscures the impact of Greene's religious imagination on his literary art.
