Mark, I suggest _The Heart of the Matter_. In my opinion, it's Greene's best novel. The story The Basement Room (made into The Fallen Idol) is also fantastic. It's in his collected stories, a fat book which shows his full talent and variety as a writer.

Incidentally, I've just finished Pritchett's collected stories, about 1/3 of which I had never read. A really and really good collection. It always takes me a while to warm up to this writer's ultradetached style, but once in the groove, his stuff moves.

End of digression.
