Ever since he first read Graham Greene's work as a schoolboy, Iyer has been obsessed by the figure of the writer and by one of the great themes of Greene's work: what it means to be an outsider. Yet as Iyer recounts the history of his obsession, another phantom image begins to assert itself, one that Iyer had long banished from his inner life--that of his father.
