The Comedians - Graham Greene 1966 - The Bodley Head, London - First Edition ‘"A liar, a cretin, a stool-pigeon…unbalanced, sadistic, perverted…a perfect ignoramus…lying to his heart's content…the shame of proud and noble England…a spy…a drug addict…a torturer." (The last epithet has always a little puzzled me.)’ – Greene describing Papa Doc Duvalier’s description of him. – Ways of Escape.

One of Graham Greene's most chilling and prophetic novels,
The Comedians is set in a Haiti ruled by Papa Doc and the Tontons Macoute, his sinister secret police. Just as The Quiet American offered a preview of the coming horrors of American involvement in Vietnam, this novel presages the chaos in Haiti.
