Three men meet on a ship bound for Haiti, a world in the grip of the corrupt "Papa Doc" and the Tontons Macoute, his sinister secret police. Brown the hotelier, Smith the innocent American, and Jones the confidence man--these are the "comedians" of Greene's title. Hiding behind their actors' masks, they hesitate on the edge of life. They are men afraid of love, afraid of pain, afraid of fear itself... For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Ännu en av Graham Greenes fantastiska böcker. Vilket fantastiskt språk, vilken närvaro. Att befinna sig i "Greeneland" är en en läsupplevelse utöver det vanliga.
