He was stooped over a barrel some twenty yards away, and I could see his hands moving within it as though he were washing them. In the others are the cheques. ‘He’s joking,’ Mrs Montgomery told us. ‘Perhaps I am. You will know by the end of the party whether I am or not. Isn’t the gamble worth.

Graham Greene - Doctor Fischer of Geneva or The Bomb Party. I think that I used to detest Doctor Fischer more than any other man I have known just as I loved his daughter more than any other woman. What a strange thing that she and I ever came to meet, leave alone to marry.
Graham Greene - Doctor Fischer of Geneva or The Bomb Party. Anna-Luise and her millionaire father inhabited a great white mansion in the classical style by the lakeside at Versoix outside Geneva while I worked as a translator and letter-writer in the immense chocolate factory of glass in Vevey. We might have been a world and not a mere canton apart.
OMiH wins, simply because of its humor. Dr Fischer is full of Greene's patented irony, but is also rather sobering. As a novel it is a bit sketchy, over the top and Dr Fischer of Geneva or The Bomb Party must be one of the more intriguing titles in Greene’s catalogue, maybe even in the whole of English literature. It’s the of Geneva that does it. It’s not just Dr Fischer we’re talking about, it’s Dr Fischer of Geneva, it’s the Dr Fischer of Genev. nd what on earth is a bomb party?

This is my second foray into Graham Greene territory. It does not take too long to get to the heart of the matter, namely, the nature of Dr. Fischer himself. That being said, once the book revs up to The Bomb Party of the alternate title, the pace really revs up and I found myself unable to stop reading. The ending is a bit abrupt and a little anti-climactic, but, upon refelction, that plays into the moral story of the book. This is one of those pieces that might have been better if a little bit shorter or a little bit longer.
Bizarre, minor, mini-Greene-an unsatisfying novella redeemed nonetheless by a master's storytelling expertise and by a dozen or more absolutely splendid coloring touches.
