The hero of Graham Greene's black comedy Our Man in Havana is Wormald, a vacuum-cleaner salesman in pre-revolutionary Cuba, which is beset by power cuts. Milly, his sixteen year-old beautiful, devoutly Catholic but materialistic and manipulative daughter spends his money with a skill that amazes him, so when a mysterious Englishman offers him an extra income he's tempted. In return all he has to do is carry out a little espionage and file a few reports. But when his fake reports start coming true, things suddenly get more complicated and Havana becomes a threatening place.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
