The British writer and journalist traveled at length for his employer, the Foreign Office, for whom he covered diverse current affairs, particularly during the Second World War. As of 1967, he made several visits to Switzerland to see his daughter who had settled in Upper Montreux. He often had a drink with Peter Ustinov, who lived in Bursins.
In the late 80's, Graham Greene decided to move permanently to Switzerland,
a country he had come to love, and he settled in Corseaux.
Like so many authors before him, he found the calm and inspiration he needed
to write his novels. Graham Greene passed away in 1991, leaving his many readers
orphaned. The writer now lies in the town cemetery of Corseaux, a charming village
overlooking Lake Geneva.
