The Honorary Consul

The Honorary Consul

Author(s): Graham Greene

Location(s): Argentina

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 20th century

Charley Fortnum is the ‘Honorary Consul’, a whisky-sodden figure of dubious authority taken by a group of rebels. As Eduardo Plarr, a local doctor, negotiates with revolutionaries and the authorities for Fortnum’s release, the corruption of both becomes evident.

In this spare, tense novel, Graham Greene explores the morality of a political system that turns priests into killers.
