With “Another Mexico,” Graham Greene’s prolific body of work is somehow even more sharply defined. This account follows Greene into Mexico in the late-1930’s, commissioned by a publisher to study the country’s religious landscape, in unconscious preparation for his whisky priest to swagger through in his moving work of fiction, The Power and the Glory. Like going behind-the-scenes or glimpsing a diary, the novel doesn’t disclose the horrible time Greene had in Mexico; witness to a momentous transition in the church that underscored the country’s own wrestling with the limits of man’s power, be it religious, political, social, scholarly, etc. Greene’s pseudo “travel book” is invaluable insight into how a writer’s reflections may start writing a great novel in spite of himself, whose curious position from the outside-in claims nothing more than observation, personal experience, and otherwise impossible encounters with another country at the breaking point of change.
