Why We Love This

Getting to Know the General by Graham Greene. New York: Simon Schuster, 1984. First printing. A great novelist's classic account of his friendship with Omar Torrijos, the leader of Panama from 1968-78. Frustrated by the General's death in a plane crash, which many suspect was an assassination, Greene sketches the years of their unlikely association and muses on the political dilemmas created by the Panama Canal, a region he'd come to love. Perfect copy with full number line.
