Meeting , schema: InformationResource , genont: Shelden portrayed Greene as a phoney Catholic, a treacherous husband, a homosexual paedophile, an anti-Semite, a sadist and - in what John Updike termed "some sort of sensationalist low point in literary biography" - both the murderer of a woman found dismembered in Brighton in and a traitor to his country.
Cash doesn't descend to these murky depths and indeed makes rather grand claims for his authorial intentions, but the result is a book as overheated and silly as it is disorganised.
Its selling point, if it has one, is fortuitous - documenting Greene's relationship with Catherine Walston and linking the details of it to the writer's novel, The End of the Affair, it appears at the same time as Neil Jordan's movie of the novel opens here, and will no doubt benefit from the coincidence.
The story, which he does not allow to tell itself, is not without interest, especially for Irish readers. Greene met Catherine Walston in the winter of when he was 43 and she The wife of a millionaire financier and the mother of small children, she immediately captivated the writer and almost at once they embarked on an affair.
The affair blossomed in Ireland - Catherine had a rented cottage on Achill and they escaped there whenever possible. Greene, married to the long-suffering Vivien, had had other extra-marital relationships, including with prostitutes, before this, and was to have yet more afterwards, but this usually unemotional man was besotted by Catherine. The same could not be said of her.
Before and during her time with Greene, she was carrying on with Ernie O'Malley just down the road from her Achill cottage she fancied him, Cash assures us, because "in addition to being an Irish Republican tough guy, he could also talk painting, sculpture and literature".
A Republican with quite a past wasn't her only speciality. In the s she had sexual liaisons with a succession of clerics, including Father Donal O'Sullivan, the Jesuit who was to become the autocratic, crony-promoting head of the Arts Council. The love depicted in the novel is not a halfway love is there such a thing as a halfway love? It is in extremes: it either loves or hates. Love in all it's splendor and horror, Greene gets it.
The novel is also about life, and death, and fate, and God, and all the struggles associated with these things. The existential struggle of the individual; the selfish power of our personalized emotions in our ultimate search for love in its many forms.
I'd have to love your God. I'd rather love the men you slept with. And, because of that, and because love makes you happy -- releasing all kinds of awesome chemicals -- you associate your beloved with almost everything, and almost everything seems and feels better. Life is so much better when you're in love, and as you turn the pages of this novel, you feel it.
The way you put your best self forward every time; the positive inner desire and motivating factor of trying to prove that you're completely worthy, and the very best for that person. The electricity that starts upon contact; how it never really goes away, but constantly gets reaffirmed through smiles, and small gestures, and actually grows stronger the longer you're together. The fact that while our emotions and inner selves are on high alert and more intense, so is our awareness of our shortcomings and weaknesses.
We become extremely self-centered. The insecurity, the jealousy; the panicky anxiety -- how all those subconscious, hidden pathologies start to surface -- you push them back, but you're made aware that they are there. The lack of control. Insecurity twists meanings and poisons trust. Deep down you know it's a farce which is probably why jealousy and pettiness often begin to play roles , but it feels great, and it makes you love your partner all the more He pounces on my words like a barrister and twists them.
What he says aloud, I say to myself silently and write it here.
But oh the joy. Oh, the complexity.. Oh, the might. Love and Hate.
Then it ends. Your world is shaken to the core. You see something that reminds you of the person and the times you had, and feel like someone punched you in the stomach. And you see that person in everything, so the pain is always there.
