Description
We all carry people inside our heads—actors, leaders, writers, figures out of history or fiction—who sometimes seem closer to us than people we know; here Pico Iyer sets out to unravel the mysterious closeness that he has always felt with the English writer Graham Greene. Iyer examines his obsessions, his elusiveness, and his penchant for mystery as he follows Greene's trail from his first novel, The Man Within, to such later classics as The Quiet American. Along the way he begins to unpack all he has in common with Greene: an English public school education, a lifelong restlessness and refusal to make a home anywhere, and a fascination with the complications of faith.

"A contemplative, idiosyncratic book, a kind of side trip that diverges from the routes of Iyer's usual writing.... As The Man Within My Head demonstrates, there's fellowship to be found in the community of eloquent strangers, an eternal literary companionship."—NYTBR
