from the novel 'The Third Man' by Graham Greene (published 1950)


Martins meets Kurtz, a character who would inspire little trust in most men. Baron von Kurtz, one of the mourners at the graveside and a friend of Harry Lime, who rings Martins at his hotel and arranges to meet him. In the book, Martins describes his first impressions: [www.writework.com]

'What I disliked about him at first sight was his toupee. It was one of those obvious toupees - flat and yellow with the hair cut straight at the back and not fitting close. There must be something phoney about a man who won't accept baldness gracefully. He had one of these faces too where the lines have been put in carefully, like a make-up, in the right places - to express charm, whimsicality, lines at the corners of the eyes.'
