"A Sort Of Life" Sense of Frustration HUTCHINSON- Watercolors ;by William Dickerson, Wichite, now through October, First National Bank. ' ' HUTCHINSON Sculpture by James Hale, 1202 N. Main, now through October, Lobby, Hutchinson Public Library. By CHRSITTOPHER LEHMANN - HAUPT (C) 1971 N.Y. Times News Service A SORT OF LIFE. By Gra* ham Greene. 220 Pages. Simon & Schuster. $6.95. No question about it, Graham Gresn's autobiography will be a disappointment to some people — especially those of us who associate his name with action, intrigue, suspense, mystery and the other guarantors! of entertainment that his long and productive wirting career has taught us to expect. "A sort of life" is written in a deliberately minor key. Gusts of melancholy diffidence blow through and around it. It abounds with tantalizing references to later, possibly more adventurous, periods of his life, when he traveled in exotic corners of the world, but these hints are never followed up. Almost perversely, he ends his account at a point of early failure, with the realization that came to him after the publica tion and ephemeral success of his second novel, "Stamboul Train" (its American title was "Orient Express"), that he had not begun to learn the craft of writing. "Failure too is a kind of death," he reminds us; for want of the real thing, he opts for a symbol. And yes,' his decision to leave so much out is disappointing. We are so hungry for the old Hollywood ending of hard work rewarded and faith fulfilled and the sufferings of vulnerable youth avenged. (The success of Moss Hart's "Act One" is a typical case in point. > • But a moment of serious reflection should explaift Greene's decision. First of all, one cannot really expect the life of a novelist to be the source of high'adventure! Like philosophers, convicted murderers and lighthouse keepers, the creator of imaginary works is condemned by the nature of his role to a relatively static existence. As Greene pinpoints it in the prologue to his story, "a book like this can only be 'a sort of life,' for in the course of 66 years I have spent almost as much time with imaginary characters as with real men and women. Indeed, though I have been fortunate in the number of my friends, I can remember no anecdotes of the famous or the notorious — the only stories which I faintly remember are the stories I have written." Presumably, the friends and the travels throughout the world were for him accessories before the" fiction; Easily Forgotten Second of all, there is that old but easily forgotten truth that regardless of the extent of a writer's productivity (and in Green's case it has been great: 18 novels, 3 collections of short stories, 4 plays and a volume of essays are listed on his page of published credits), the writer has essentially but one story to tell, and each succeeding work is that essential story in a different guise. "If I had known it," Green begms his account, "the whole, future must have lain all the time along those Berkhamsted streets," where he grew up. So what follows is really his attempt to divine that "whole truth" in retrospect. ! But where does that leave Greene's readers? O n e can Imagine several places. For the social historian the book provides a precise record of past English life — a catalogue of the sights, sounds, smells, books, toys and eccentric aunts that entered the experience of many a boy growing up at the start of the REP CARPET RESTAURANT Tha^syou.for the privilege cut serving you/ HuLhinson Newt Saturday, Oct 9,1971 Page 11A Saturday, Octobtr 16,1971 8 10 10 11 11:30 20th century in the bosom of a large middle - class family. For the psychologist it is a romp through a fertile field of his neuroses. For Greene dwells almost nostalgically on his fears of, birds, moths, witches, midnight fires, drowning and injured flesh (the mere mention of an accident or a surgical operation could cause him to faint). He recounts lovingly his vivid, sometimes premonitory, dreamlife (which has continued into his old age). He underwent "psychoanalysis" at the age of 16 (in 1920!) and found that on rare occasions when he could recall' no actual dreams, he would fabricate one that in variably began with a pig (the significance of which remains obscure), In his young man hood he took to playing Russian roulette with his brother's pistol until the game no longer provided energizing thrills and he was forced to seek symbolic variations. He pronounces himself a manic-de-pressive. For aspiring writers there are useful scraps of advice on constructing strong narrative passages. And for the literary scholar there .is source material for many of his fictional scenes, as well as explanations for the emotional patterns that govern many of his finest books (off course his conversion to Catholicism plays no small part here). In short, this is the ground plan, not the architecture, of a writer's life, and Greene was probably wise to cut it short at the point he did, despite the sense of frustration it leaves us with. 12 Budget Term's ; Arranged.
