Da Londra a Istanbul fino al Paraguay: il cinquantenne Henry Pulling, ex funzionario di banca che conduce una tranquilla vita da pensionato, viene coinvolto dall'ottuagenaria zia Augusta, donna eccentrica e anticonformista, in un incredibile viaggio dove fra droga, sesso e traffici illeciti incontra ragazzine hippie in partenza per Kathmandu, loschi agenti della CIA, decrepiti avventurieri italiani. I due improbabili compagni di viaggio più che personaggi sono caratteri che vivono situazioni assurde, al limite del paradosso. Sotto il velo di una vis comica rara per Greene, in questo volume emerge in realtà la costante della sua narrativa, il tentativo di definire e comprendere il mondo ambiguo e impenetrabile in cui viviamo.
Ed è così che l'itinerario geografico si fa metafora di un percorso esistenziale lungo le traiettorie della vita.

Former Broadway dancer and current agoraphobic Billy Shine has not set foot outside his apartment in almost a decade. He has glimpsed his neighbors but most of them have never seen Billy. Not until Grace begins to sit outside on the building’s front stoop for hours every day, inches from Billy’s patio. Troubled by this change in the natural order, Billy makes it far enough out onto his porch to ask Grace why she doesn’t sit inside where it’s safe. Her answer: “If I sit inside, then nobody will know I’m in trouble. And then nobody will help me.” Her answer changes everything.

Until they move in with Aunt Vi, across the fence from a huge black Great Dane who changes everything. Sophie falls in love immediately, and begins to imitate the "inside of the dog," which, fortunately, is a calm place. The shrieking stops.

Nathan makes her promise, however, that one day she’ll bring the boy to meet him so he can reveal that he was the one who rescued him. Fifteen years later, the widowered Nathan discovers the child abandoned once again—this time at his doorstep. Named Nat, the teenager has grown into a sullen delinquent whose grandmother can no longer tolerate him.

Catherine Ryan Hyde’s international sensation, Pay It Forward, is the moving story of Trevor McKinney, a twelve-year-old boy who accepts his social studies teacher’s challenge to come up with a plan to change the world.
Trevor’s idea is simple: Do a good deed for three people and ask them to "pay it forward" to three others who need help. He envisions a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading beyond his small California town and across the world.
