Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
‘The Boy’ Pinkie is a 17-year-old gangster – described by Evelyn Waugh as ‘the ideal examinee for entry into Hell. He gets an alpha in every paper.’ Armed with vitriol and fuelled by adrenaline, Pinkie is a sociopath who lives by violence and deception, managing to keep himself one step ahead of the law. Sixteen-year-old Rose is an innocent and trusting girl who unintentionally compromises Pinkie’s alibi for the murder of rival gang member Fred Hale. Pinkie can prevent her from testifying against him by tricking her into a loveless marriage, but an amateur vigilante, Ida, has sensed that Rose is in grave danger … As damnation closes in on Pinkie, Rose is ‘doomed’ to salvation and the ‘appalling strangeness of the mercy of God’.
