Four Graham Greene novels dramatised for BBC R4

Four Graham Greene novels are to be dramatised for BBC Radio 4, as 2016 marks 25 years since the author's death.

The Honorary Consul (Vintage Classics), one of Greene's personal favourites "because the characters change and that is very difficult to do”, is among his four chosen novels.

The Honorary Consul adaptation, writen by script-writer Nick Warburton, will air over two hour long episodes on Sunday afternoons, starting this Sunday (31st January) and concluding on 7th February.

The three other chosen novels - The Power and the Glory (Vintage Classics), also adapted by Warburton; Monsignor Quixote (Vintage Classics), adapted by Stephen Wyatt; and The Confidential Agent (Vintage Classics), adapted by Nick Perry - will air later in the year.

All 24 of Greene's novels are published by Vintage Classics, plus two collections of essays, two autobiographies, two short story collections and all of Greene’s travel writing. In 2015, an enhanced ebook edition of The Third Man was published to coincide with StudioCanal’s remastering of the film.
