Reader's note

Add this excellent 1980s vintage book to your bookshelf today! The Quiet American is a terrifying portrait of innocence at large. While the French Army in Indo-China is grappling with the Vietminh, back at Saigon a young and high minded American begins to channel Economic Aid to a 'Third Force'. The narrator, a seasoned foreign correspondent, is forced to observe: 'I never knew a man who had better motives for all the trouble he caused'. As young Pyle's policies blunder into bloodshed, the older man finds it impossible to stand aside as an observer... this thrilling title deserves a place within any Penguin collection!
