The Tenth Man (1985)

Creators

Graham Greene (writer).

Subject

An artist paints his picture not in a few hours but in all the years of experience before he takes up the brush, and it is the same with failure.

Commentary

Decent existentialism. I received my copy, a green Penguin paperback, as a 1997 Christmas gift from Philip Groves, my middle-school teacher of English as a native language.
