Graham Greene (1904-1991) is regarded by many as one of the 20th century's greatest novelists. In 1926, he lived in the All Saints area of Nottingham, while working as a journalist on hte Nottingham Journal (now the Nottingham Post). During that time, he was received in the Roman Catholic Church at S. Barnabas' Cathedral. Through 67 years of writing, which included over 25 novels, he explored the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world, often through a Catholic perspective.
