    Dangerous Edge: A Life of Graham Greene This film is a portrait of a writer Graham Greene. It explores how Greene's life both inspired great writing and drove him to attempt suicide. He was a British spy, a doubting Catholic, and a manic-depressive who wrote critically-acclaimed, best- selling novels, including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair and The Third Man. This documentary weaves Greene's novels and movies into the story of his life: the struggle between good and evil... love and betrayal; it reveals an extraordinary man who traveled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence and became a writer addicted to danger. The film is a journey in search of Greene's most elusive character: himself. Sir Derek Jacobi narrates the film and actor Bill Nighy reads from Greene's writing. Other major participants include novelist and screenwriter Sir John Mortimer, novelist and former SIS agent John Le Carre, award-winning literary critic and novelist David Lodge, acclaimed writer Paul Theroux, former CIA operative and author of The Great Game Frederick Hitz, Greene's wife, Vivien, and his daughter Caroline Bourget. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    American Masters [#2603H] Philip Roth: Unmasked Often referred to as the greatest living American writer, Philip Roth's 31st novel - and 4th film made from one of his novels-- is due to appear in 2013. "Goodbye Columbus," the collection of short stories published in 1959, put the 26-year old Roth on the map and "Portnoy's Complaint," 10 years later, propelled him into a scandalous spotlight. Yet he steadily earned the reputation as a man of letters, commanding ownership of the Jewish-American novel and making Newark, NJ a literary destination. He practically invented the genre of factual/fictional autobiography - his thinly-veiled "Zuckerman Trilogy" follows the protagonist's path from aspiring young writer to compromised celebrity. His career was considered dead by 1990 - and then exploded with a dozen best sellers in the past two decades. This film bears out Roth's promise to the director: "we'll speak of everything: women, rabbis, politicians, psycho-analysis, literary critics and me." duration 1:25:46   STEREO TVPG

    Tom Wolfe Gets Back to Blood Readers and fans of Tom Wolfe can now, for the first time, take a journey with the iconic American author to see and hear a story that has never been told ? the making of one of his novels. Set in Miami, like his soon-to-be-released book Back to Blood, this documentary tells the tale of Wolfe's latest literary adventure ? how the writer carefully concocted and crafted his new sun-soaked, immigrant-centric thriller. Tom Wolfe: Blood Lines, the only film ever made about Wolfe, captures rare, candid moments as he researches his subject matter with myriad sources in diverse locals in and around Miami. He is soaked during a regatta as bikini-clad revelers boat-hop across Biscayne Bay. He checks out white suits at thrift shops, visits new immigrant homes and rubs elbows with Miami's elite. The documentary is both an ode to the elusive literary giant and a voyage through the best and worst of wacky Miami. duration 57:01   STEREO TVG
