Graham Greene 1988. The Captain and the Enemy. 2016 Audible eAudiobook read by Kenneth Branagh.

Graham Greeneā€™s last novel.

Measured reveal of the layers of memory, meaning, understanding. Young lad won from his father by The Captain in a backgammon (or was it chess?) game. Growing up and slowly learning more, but not enough, of The Captain, Liza, Panama, the Sandanistas, love, trust and so on.

Masterful. Surely Kazuo Ishiguro is his literary heir.
