Seedy: Greene 'Stamboul Train' (1932)

A train that could whisk its passengers across borders and into each other’s arms was definitely too dangerous for the censors. With Juliette Breton.


  • There's something quite erotic and tempting about travel, the possibility that you can go anywhere, but also you can meet anyone. Juliette Breton
  • So many thriller/adventure/spy novels from the period use trains as a kind of way of getting into the action. Juliette Breton
  • The train is like the boat going across the River Styx – everyone gets on it eventually. Aoife Bhreatnach
