en Limba Engleză Paperback – August 2007 – vârsta de la 18 ani
M16’s man in Havana is Wormold, a former vacuum-cleaner salesman turned reluctant secret agent out of economic necessity. To keep his job, he files bogus reports based on Lamb’s Tales from Shakespeare and dreams up military installations from vacuum-cleaner designs. Then his stories start becoming disturbingly true…
 
First published in 1959 against the backdrop of the Cold War, Our Man in Havana is an espionage thriller, a penetrating character study, and a political satire of government intelligence that still resonates today. It remains one of Graham Greene’s most widely read novels. This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by Christopher Hitchens.
