English author Graham Greene (1904-1991) is best known for his Catholic novels such as "The Power and the Glory" and "The End of the Affair", which explore modern moral and politcal issues; he also who worked for British Intelligence and travelled extensively in addition to writing. "Travels With My Aunt" is a novel following a man and his aunt as they travel through Europe; this volume, titled "Reflections on Travels With My Aunt", is exactly that, as Greene looks back on his novel and the context surrounding the writing of it. Greene says of the novel, " 'Travels With My Aunt' is the only book I have written for the fun of it." This lovely volume contains the quiet thoughts of a wide-ranging writer and sheds light on both the novel and the man.
