May We Borrow Your Husband? – Graham Greene


Affairs, obsessions, grand passions and tiny ardours course through these twelve poignant and wryly humorous stories of sexual love.

The title story in this collection is a searing tale of innocence and corruption. Author William Harris is spending the fag-end of the season at Antibes finishing his first attempt at historical biography, but he becomes more and more interested and involved in the antics of two homosexual interior decorators intent on stealing Poopy Travis’s honeymoon husband. Which leaves him free to fall in love with Poopy himself…

Greene himself lived in Antibes for several years from the mid-sixties.
