Dr Fischer of Geneva by Graham Greene

 

 fischer

Doctor Fischer despises the human race. When the notorious toothpaste millionaire decides to hold the last of his famous parties – his own deadly version of the Book of Revelations – Greene opens up a powerful vision of the limitless greed of the rich. Black comedy and painful satire combine in a totally compelling novel.

Short, brutal and really rather splendid. For some reason I had never picked this up before and I’m really glad I did. It really is a dark and gripping read.
