His parents, Charles Henry Greene and Marion Raymond Greene, were first cousins ,  both members of a large, influential family that included the owners of Greene King Brewery , bankers, and statesmen; his mother was cousin to Robert Louis Stevenson. In Greene's description of his childhood, he describes his learning to read there: "It was at Harston I found quite suddenly I could read — the book was Dixon Brett, Detective.
I didn't want anyone to know of my discovery, so I read only in secret, in a remote attic, but my mother must have spotted what I was at all the same, for she gave me Ballantyne's The Coral Island for the train journey home — always an interminable journey with the long wait between trains at Bletchley…" In , Charles Greene succeeded Dr Fry as headmaster of Berkhamsted.
Graham also attended the school as a boarder.
Bullied and profoundly depressed, he made several suicide attempts, including, as he wrote in his autobiography, by Russian roulette and by taking aspirin before going swimming in the school pool. In , aged 16, in what was a radical step for the time, he was sent for psychoanalysis for six months in London, afterwards returning to school as a day student.

In , Greene was for a short time a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain , and sought an invitation to the new Soviet Union , of which nothing came. The story, which he does not allow to tell itself, is not without interest, especially for Irish readers.
Greene met Catherine Walston in the winter of when he was 43 and she The wife of a millionaire financier and the mother of small children, she immediately captivated the writer and almost at once they embarked on an affair. The affair blossomed in Ireland - Catherine had a rented cottage on Achill and they escaped there whenever possible. Greene, married to the long-suffering Vivien, had had other extra-marital relationships, including with prostitutes, before this, and was to have yet more afterwards, but this usually unemotional man was besotted by Catherine.
The same could not be said of her. Before and during her time with Greene, she was carrying on with Ernie O'Malley just down the road from her Achill cottage she fancied him, Cash assures us, because "in addition to being an Irish Republican tough guy, he could also talk painting, sculpture and literature".
A Republican with quite a past wasn't her only speciality.
In the s she had sexual liaisons with a succession of clerics, including Father Donal O'Sullivan, the Jesuit who was to become the autocratic, crony-promoting head of the Arts Council.
At the time of his affair with Catherine - mainly conducted in the Fitzwilliam Square basement-flat she also rented, where they shared bed and booze - Father O'Sullivan was Master of Novices at the Jesuit college in Emo, Portarlington. Such, seemingly, is the kingdom of Heaven - or, at least, an Irish clerical version of it.
There is a type of woman who likes to seduce priests as part of their rebellion against Catholicism. By Graham Greene. Go to the editions section to read or download ebooks. The end of the affair Graham Greene.
