Ways Of Escape (Vintage Classics) - Graham Greene

It was, I think, in 1954 that I was deported from Puerto Rico, an occasion I shall always remember with pleasure. Life is not rich in comedy; one has to cherish what there is of it and savour it during the bad days.

Greene's tale of being deported for having been a communist for four weeks at the age of 19 is hilarious, even tho it was likely no laugh for him (or anyone else) at the time.
