Travels with My Aunt
Travels with My Aunt is a novel written by English author Graham Greene. The novel follows the travels of Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager, his eccentric Aunt Augusta as they find their way across Europe, even further afield. Aunt Augusta pulls Henry away from his quiet suburban existence into a world of adventure and the unconventional details of her past; the novel begins when Henry Pulling, a conventional and uncharming bank manager who has taken early retirement, meets his septuagenarian Aunt Augusta for the first time in over fifty years at his mother's funeral. Despite having little in common, they form a bond. On their first meeting, Augusta tells Henry that his mother was not his mother and we learn that Henry's father has been dead for more than 40 years; as they leave the funeral, Henry goes to Augusta's house and meets her lover Wordsworth – a man from Sierra Leone. Henry finds himself drawn into Aunt Augusta's world of travel, adventure and absence of bigotry, he travels first with her to Brighton, where he meets one of his aunt's old acquaintances, gains an insight into one of her many past lives.
Here a psychic foreshadows. This prediction becomes true as Henry is pulled further and further into his aunt's lifestyle, delves deeper into her past, their voyages take them from Paris to Istanbul on the Simplon Orient Express, as the journey unfolds, so do the stories of Aunt Augusta, painting the picture of a woman for whom love has been the defining feature of her life. Henry returns to his quiet retirement; when he receives a letter from his aunt, he gives up his old life to join her and the love of her life in South America, to marry a girl decades younger than himself. As his travels progress it becomes clear to Henry that the woman he had been raised to believe was his mother was in fact his aunt, his real mother is Augusta, her reconnection with him at her sister's funeral marked the beginning of her reclamation of her child. The plot revolves around two main characters: Aunt Augusta. Henry Pulling: A man in his mid-50s who worked his entire life as a banker; when the bank was bought out he took up gardening and tending his Dahlias.
Over the course his travels with Aunt Augusta, Henry is transformed from a character who longs for the safety and predictability of a quiet life to one who seeks adventure. Aunt Augusta is the opposite of Henry, she is an amoral character who revels in sexual small-time swindles. She has worked as a prostitute and had several intense love affairs that she describes to Henry on their travels; the most important of these love affairs was one with Henry's father when she became pregnant with Henry and another with a man named Mr. Visconti. If Henry is on a journey from safety to adventure, Aunt Augusta is on a two-fold journey to reconnect with Henry – the son she now can know since his mother has died – and with Mr. Visconti – the lover whom she most wants to see again. In addition to Henry and Aunt Augusta, there are two strong supporting characters. Wordsworth: Aunt Augusta's current lover when she meets Henry. If Aunt Augusta is the amoral center of the novel, Wordsworth is its moral center, he will do anything that she asks.
His love and devotion stand in stark opposition to Augusta's cavalier approach to her lovers. He follows her to Paraguay and helps her reunite with Visconti, his morality and unmourned death serves as a counterpoint for Aunt Augusta's pleasure-focused life. Mr. Visconti; the previous lover who Aunt Augusta is seeking throughout the book. Visconti was a swindler prior to World War II who helped the Nazis loot art from wealthy Italians. In the aftermath of the war, he fled as a war criminal, he never expresses regret for his actions with the Nazis and – although Henry finds himself feeling alive as he takes up a career as a smuggler with Visconti – his unrepentant Nazi past is designed to draw into question the ultimate wisdom of Henry's move from his boring, safe life to Aunt Augusta's life of adventure. The novel was adapted, with large departures from the original story, for film in 1972 by Jay Presson Allen and Hugh Wheeler, directed by George Cukor, starring Maggie Smith and Alec McCowen. British playwright and actor Giles Havergal wrote a version for stage, first presented at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow on 10 November 1989.
This stage version was reduced to a 50-minute, one act version and first presented by the Backwell Playhouse Theatre Company as an entry into the Avon Association of Art One Act Festival on 21 February 2015. There is a BBC radio by René Basilico with Charles Kay and Dame Hilda Bracket in the leading roles, it was adapted as a musical in 2016 starring Patricia Hodge. Richard Boston.

Rumour at Nightfall
Rumour at Nightfall is the third novel by Graham Greene, published in 1931. Like his second novel, The Name of Action, it failed to repeat the success of his first novel, The Man Within. "O ye that stand upon the brink, Whom I so near me through the chink With wonder see: What faces there, Whose fcet, whose bodies, do ye wear? I another me, they are we. His most loyal fighter, Caveda refuses to submit and continues to defy the new government, pursued by an army led by Colonel Riego. English journalist, Francis Chase has been in Spain covering the story for the last two years, travelling with Colonel Riego's outfit on the trail of Caveda. After a skirmish with rebels in which Colonel Riego's son is killed, Francis Chase discovers a mail bag which contains a clue that may lead them to Caveda; the bag contains some personal items of Caveda, including letters, gloves and a photograph of a young woman. Chase separates from the outfit, heads to the town of San Juan alone to try and locate the woman in the photograph.
He returns to the Inn where he stayed, to find to his surprise his friend and colleague Michael Crane. Crane has left the London newspaper, arrived in Spain some months ago. With Crane's help, they track down the woman in Eulelia Monti. Chase meets with Eulelia Monti. Meanwhile, Crane sees a man leave the building who he believes is Caveda and tracks him to a bar in town. Following the destruction of San Juan's bridge by Caveda's men, Colonel Riego arrives in town, executes a local barber, a known Caveda informer. Michael Crane becomes infatuated by Eulelia Monti and betrays Chase, by informing her that Chase cannot be trusted. Chase is concerned for his friends well being, advises Crane to leave San Juan on horseback, to deliver a message to his newspaper. On the ride out of town, Crane meets Eulelia Monti who advises him that Caveda is planning an uprising at the funeral of the barber the next morning. Crane announces his love for Eulelia Monti, they ride back into San Juan and are married in secret.
Chase meets with General Diaz and Colonel Riego and advises that his friend, Crane knows where Caveda is located and can identify him. Chase begins to feel a kinship with the elusive Caveda, feels guilt over his involvement in the plan to capture him, he is surprised when Crane returns to the Inn, advises he has married Eulelia Monti. Furious with his friend, Chase goes in search of Caveda to warn him of the plan to capture him and how his friend, Crane has betrayed them both. In his second autobiography, Ways of Escape, Greene wrote: My second and third novels, The Name of Action and Rumour at Nightfall, published in 1930 and 1931, can now be found, I am glad to think, only in secondhand bookshops at an exaggerated price, since some years after their publication I suppressed them. Both books are of a badness beyond the power of criticism properly to evoke—the prose flat and stilted and in the case of Rumour at Nightfall, the characterization nonexistent. According to the publishers' reports, William Heinemann sold only 1,200 copies and Doubleday Doran sold only 1,018 copies.

Civil defense siren
A civil defence siren is a siren used to provide the emergency population warning of approaching danger, while sometimes indicating when the danger has passed. Some are used to call the volunteer fire department when they are needed. Designed to warn city dwellers of air raids in World War II, they were reused to warn of nuclear attack and of natural destructive weather patterns such as tornadoes; the generalised nature of the siren led to many of them being replaced with more specialised warnings, such as the Emergency Alert System. A mechanical siren generates sound by spinning a slotted chopper wheel to interrupt a stream of air at a regular rate. Modern sirens can develop a sound level of up to 135 decibels at 100 feet; the Chrysler air raid siren, driven by a 331-cubic-inch Chrysler Hemi gasoline engine, generates 138 dB at 100 feet away. By use of varying tones or binary patterns of sound, different alert conditions can be signalled. Electronic sirens can transmit voice announcements in addition to alert tone signals.
Siren systems may be electronically integrated into other warning systems. Many warning sirens have a sound made distinguishable from that used by emergency vehicles by the use of two simultaneous tones, with pitches in a 5:6 frequency ratio. In the United States, several sets of warning tones have been used that have varied due to age, government structure, manufacturer; the initial alerts used during World War II were the Attack Signal. The Victory Siren manual stated that when manual generation of the warbling tone was required, it could be achieved by holding the Signal switch on for 8 seconds and off for 4 seconds. In 1950, the Federal Civil Defence Administration revised the signals, naming the alert signal "red alert" and adding an "all-clear" signal, characterized by three 1-minute steady blasts, with 2 minutes of silence between the blasts. Beginning in 1952, the Bell and Lights Air Raid Warning System, developed by AT&T, was made available to provide automated transmission of an expanded set of alert signals: Red Alert Yellow Alert White Alert Blue Alert The Yellow Alert and Red Alert signals correspond to the earlier Alert Signal and Attack Signal and the early Federal Signal AR timer siren control units featured the "Take Cover" button labelled with a red background, the "Alert" button labelled with a yellow background.
AF timers changed the colour-coding, setting the Alert button as blue, the Take Cover button yellow, the Fire button red, thus confusing the colour-coding of the alerts. In 1955, the Federal Civil Defence Administration again revised the warning signals, altering them to deal with concern over nuclear fallout; the new set of signals were the Take-Cover Signal. The All-Clear signal was removed because leaving a shelter while fallout was present would prove hazardous. During World War II Britain had two warning tones: Red Warning All Clear These tones would be initialised by the Royal Observer Corps spotting Luftwaffe aircraft coming towards Britain, helped by coastal radar stations; the Attack Warning would be sounded when the Royal Observer Corps spotted enemy aircraft in the immediate area. The sirens were tested periodically; this was done by emitting the tones in reverse order, with the All Clear tone followed by the Red Warning tone. This ensured. Sirens are sometimes integrated into a warning system that links sirens with other warning media, such as the radio and TV Emergency Alert System, NOAA Weather Radio, telephone alerting systems, Reverse 911, Cable Override and wireless alerting systems in the United States and the National Public Alerting System, Alert Ready, in Canada.
This fluid approach enhances the credibility of warnings and reduces the risk of assumed false alarms by corroborating the warning messages through multiple media. The Common Alerting Protocol is a technical standard for this sort of multi-system integration. Siren installations themselves have many ways of being activated. Used are DTMF broadcasts over phone lines or over radio broadcast; this does open vulnerability for exploitation. These sirens can be tied into other networks such as a fire departments volunteer notification/paging system; the basics of this type of installation would consist of a device connected to the controller/timer system of the siren. When a page is received, the siren is activated. A mechanical siren uses a rotor and stator to chop an airstream, forced through the siren by radial vanes in the spinning rotor. An example of this type of siren is the Federal Signal 2T22, developed during the Cold War and produced from the early 1950s to the late 1980s; this particular design employs dual stators to sound each pitch.
Because the sound power output of this type of siren is the same in every direction at all times, it is described as omnidirectional. The Federal 2T22 was marketed in a 3-signal configuration known as the Federal Signal 3T22, which had capabilities for a "hi-lo" signal; some sirens, like the Federal Signal Thunderbolt series, had a blower so that more air could be pumped into the siren. While some mechanica
Brighton Rock (novel)
Brighton Rock is a novel by Graham Greene, published in 1938 and adapted for film in 1947 and 2010. The novel is a murder thriller set in 1930s Brighton; the title refers to a confectionery traditionally sold at seaside resorts, which in the novel is used as a metaphor for the personality of Pinkie, the same all the way through. There are links between this novel and Greene's earlier novel A Gun for Sale, because Raven's murder of the gang boss Kite, mentioned in A Gun For Sale, allows Pinkie to take over his gang and thus sets the events of Brighton Rock in motion. Charles "Fred" Hale comes to Brighton on assignment to distribute cards anonymously for a newspaper competition; the antihero of the novel, Pinkie Brown, is up-and-coming gangster. Hale had betrayed the former leader of the gang Pinkie now controls, by writing an article in the Daily Messenger about a slot machine racket for which the gang was responsible. Ida Arnold, a plump, kind-hearted and decent woman, is drawn into the action by a chance meeting with the terrified Hale after he has been threatened by Pinkie's gang.
After being chased through the streets and lanes of Brighton, Hale accidentally meets Ida again on the Palace Pier, but Pinkie murders Hale. Pinkie's subsequent attempts to cover his tracks and remove evidence of Hale's Brighton visit lead to a chain of fresh crimes and to Pinkie's ill-fated marriage to a waitress called Rose, who unknowingly has the power to destroy his alibi. Ida decides to pursue Pinkie relentlessly, because she believes it is the right thing to do, as well as to protect Rose from the disturbed boy she has married. Although ostensibly an underworld thriller, the book deals with Roman Catholic doctrine concerning the nature of sin and the basis of morality. Pinkie and Rose are Catholics, as was Greene, their beliefs are contrasted with Ida's strong but non-religious moral sensibility. Greene alludes to the French Catholic writer Charles Péguy in Brighton Rock, in relation to ideas about damnation and mercy, in The Lawless Roads he refers to "Péguy challenging God in the cause of the damned".
Pinkie: The antihero of the story, merciless to his victims obsessed with and repelled by sex and human connection. He is the leader of'the mob' despite being the youngest at 17. Dallow: Pinkie's second-in-command, the only member of the mob Pinkie feels he can confide in. Cubitt: Another mob member who lives at Frank's, a boarding house, with Pinkie and Dallow, he leaves the gang. Spicer: An ageing mob member resident at Frank's. From the beginning he expresses discomfort with the gang's increasing violence. Pinkie's mistrust of him leads to his murder by Pinkie, for fear Spicer might inform Ida Arnold or the police. Rose: A poor, naïve girl who becomes Pinkie's girlfriend and wife. She, like Pinkie, is Roman Catholic, she falls in love with him despite his advances to her being purely motivated to keep her from giving incriminating evidence against him. Pinkie is repelled by her but has the occasional feeling of tenderness towards her. Ida Arnold: Ida takes up the role of detective, hunting down Pinkie to bring justice to Hale, when she finds out that Pinkie is marrying Rose, to save the girl.
Ida represents the force of justice in the novel. She acquires information from Cubitt once he has been cast out of the gang, which aids her investigation. Eric Linden starred as Pinky in an original production at the Catholic University of America Theatre in Washington, D. C. written by Leo Brady. The show was directed by Kerr and Dr. Josephine McGarry Callan and ran from February 4 to February 10, 1942; the Library of Congress has a theatre program from the production. Richard Attenborough and Dulcie Gray starred in the original theatrical production, which ran for 100 performances at the Garrick Theatre in 1943.. Gray's performance as the luckless waitress Rose led to her being offered a contract with Gainsborough Pictures. However, she was passed over for the role of Rose in the 1947 film version of Brighton Rock, in favour of Carol Marsh. Greene and Terence Rattigan wrote the screenplay for a 1947 film adaptation and directed by John and Roy Boulting, with assistant director Gerald Mitchell.
The film starred Richard Attenborough as Pinkie, Carol Marsh as Rose, William Hartnell as Dallow, Hermione Baddeley as Ida. The climax of the film takes place at the Palace Pier. In the United States, the film was released under the title Young Scarface. Ken Whitmore adapted Greene's story for a 1997 BBC Radio dramatisation, directed by John Yorke and starring Steven Mackintosh, Maurice Denham and Kenneth Cranham. Film composer John Barry and lyricist Don Black wrote a musical version based on Greene's novel; the show opened in London's Almeida Theatre on 20 September and ran until 13 October 2004. However, owing to poor reviews, it failed to get a West End transfer. Rowan Joffé directed a film adaptation, released in 2010, starring Sam Riley as Pinkie, Andrea Riseborough as Rose and Helen Mirren as Ida Arnold. Location filming for the Pier scenes took place in Eastbourne in October 2009, with Eastbourne Pier standing for Brighton's Palace Pier. Filming of the scenes involving the Regency Café took place in Page Street, Westminster, on 6 December 2009.
In a chronological departure from Greene's novel, set in the 1930s, the film is set in the Mods and Rockers subculture of a divid

Rowe returns to Anna
Our Man in Havana
Our Man In Havana is a novel set in Cuba by the British author Graham Greene. He makes fun of intelligence services the British MI6, their willingness to believe reports from their local informants; the book predates the Cuban Missile Crisis, but certain aspects of the plot, notably the role of missile installations, appear to anticipate the events of 1962. It was adapted into a film of the same name in 1959, directed by Carol Reed and starring Alec Guinness. In 1963 it was adapted into an opera by Malcolm Williamson, to a libretto by Sidney Gilliat, who had worked on the film. In 2007, it was adapted into a play by Clive Francis, which has since toured the UK several times and been performed in various parts of the world. Greene joined MI6 in August 1941. In London, Greene had been appointed to the subsection dealing with counter-espionage in the Iberian Peninsula, where he had learned about German agents in Portugal sending the Germans fictitious reports, which garnered them expenses and bonuses to add to their basic salary.
One of the agents was "Garbo", a Spanish double agent in Lisbon, who gave his German handlers disinformation, by pretending to control a ring of agents all over England. In fact, he invented armed forces movements and operations from maps and standard military references. Garbo was the main inspiration for Wormold, the protagonist of Our Man In Havana. Remembering the German agents in Portugal, Greene wrote the first version of the story in 1946, as an outline for a film script, with the story set in Estonia in 1938; the film was never made, Greene soon realised that Havana, which he had visited several times in the early 1950s, would be a much better setting, with the absurdities of the Cold War being more appropriate for a comedy. The novel, a black comedy, is set in Havana during the Fulgencio Batista regime. James Wormold, a vacuum cleaner retailer, is approached by Hawthorne, who tries to recruit him for the Secret Intelligence Service. Wormold's wife had left him and now, he lives with his 16-year-old beautiful, devoutly Catholic but materialistic and manipulative daughter Milly.
Since Wormold does not make enough money to pay for Milly's extravagances, he accepts the offer of a side job in espionage. Because he has no information to send to London, Wormold fabricates his reports using information found in newspapers and invents a fictitious network of agents; some of the names in his network are those of real people. Wormold tells only his friend and World War I veteran, Dr. Hasselbacher, about his spy work, hiding the truth from Milly. At one point, he decides to make his reports "exciting" by sending to London sketches of what he describes as a secret military installation in the mountains vacuum cleaner parts scaled to a large size. In London, nobody except Hawthorne, the only one to know that Wormold sells vacuum cleaners, doubts this report. However, Hawthorne keeps quiet for fear of losing his job. In the light of the new developments, London sends Wormold a secretary, Beatrice Severn, a radio assistant codenamed "C" with much spy paraphernalia. On arriving, Beatrice tells Wormold.
Her first request is to contact the pilot Raúl. Under pressure, Wormold develops an elaborate plan for his fictitious agent "Raúl". However, to his surprise, a real person with the same name is killed in an apparent car accident. From on, Wormold's manufactured universe overlaps with reality, with threats made to his "contacts". Together, who still believes the contacts to be real, Wormold try to save the real people who share names with his fictional agents. Meanwhile, London passes on the information that an unspecified enemy, implied to be a Soviet contact, intends to poison Wormold at a trade association luncheon, where he is the speaker, it would seem. London is pleased by this. Wormold sees Dr. Hasselbacher, who loudly warns him of the threat. Wormold continues to dinner where he manages to refuse the meal, offered and eats another one. Across the table sits a fellow vacuum cleaner salesman he had met earlier, who offers him whisky. Suspicious, Wormold knocks over the glass, drunk by the headwaiter's dachshund, which soon dies.
In retaliation for the failure, Carter kills Dr. Hasselbacher at the club bar. Captain Segura, a military strongman in love with Milly and intending to marry her, has a list of all of the spies in Havana, which Wormold would like to send to London to redeem his employment, he tells Segura. Once there, Wormold proposes they play a game of draughts using miniature bottles of Scotch and Bourbon as the game pieces, where each piece taken has to be drunk at once. Segura, a much better player, ends up drunk and falls asleep. Wormold photographs the list using a microdot camera. To avenge the murder of Dr. Hasselbacher, Wormold convinces Carter to accompany him on a drive and, at a local brothel and after some hesitation, shoots with Segura's pistol, he is about to leave. Carter shoots back. Wormold sends the agent list as a microdot photograph on a postage stamp to London, but it proves blank when processed. Wormold confesses everything to Beatrice. Captain Segura has Wormold deported. Wormold and Beatrice are summoned to headquarters, where Beatrice is posted to Jakarta and Wormold's situation is considered.
To avoid embarrassment and silence him from speaking to the press, MI6 offers Wormold a teaching post at headquarters and recommends h
