Absorbing.
Somehow Greene manages to weave subjects like morality, truth and religion into ordinary conversations. And, despite that, the people seem real.
Made into a bad movie with an all-star cast

What a misleading title! There is nothing funny about this novel of Haiti at all. Made into a film with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, which is also not funny. What gives?

GREENE shows us that the option to gauge 'reality' is what we are constantly (yet unconsciously) doing. We select our own worldviews and 'end up' in the circumstances that we 'set up.' Though he writes like a journalist, his adroit handling of this works literary elements is balanced and thoroughly engaging.
