Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman, was short of money. His daughter had reached an expensive age - so he accepted Hawthorne's offer of $300-plus a month and became Agent 59200/5, M. I.6's man in Havana. To keep the job, Wormold pretends to recruit sub-agents and sends fake stories. Then the stories start coming disturbingly true...
»Comical, satirical, atmospherical.«
»Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature.«
