The Quiet American by Graham Greene

http://bibliojunkie.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/the-quiet-american-vintage.jpgI am a Greene fan, and I've seen both film versions and had wanted to read account of a a careless and naive American in Vietnam in the late 1950s as seen by a jaded British reporter. It is a great book, beautifully crafted and unsentimental, and the politics are right on and immensely relevant today. A strong recommendation for all.
