"A powerful late work...a mixture of entertainment and deep human awareness" -- Malcolm Bradbury
"Monsignor Quixote is important in showing what may be the last stage of the novelist's long argument with himself about the needs, nature and effect of faith" * Times Literary Supplement *
"Graham Greene's best, most absorbing, adept and effortless novel" * Spectator *
"One of the finest writers of any language... Monsignor Quixote is a tour de force and a revealing document of Greene's theological and political intelligence" * Washington Post *
