Wormold is a vacuum cleaner salesman in a city of power cuts. His adolescent daughter spends his money with a skill that amazes him, so when a mysterious Englishman offers him an extra income he's tempted. In return all he has to do is carry out a little espionage and file a few reports. But when his fake reports start coming true, things suddenly get more complicated and Havana becomes a threatening place.

'As comical, satirical, atmospherical an"entertainment" as he has given us' - Daily Telegraph. 'No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene' - Time. 'He had a sharp nose for trouble and injustice. In Our Man In Havana - a witty send-up of an agent's life - it was Cuba before Castro' - Financial Times.
