Fishburn and Hughes: "A novelist of American origin who wrote both in French and English and is the only foreigner to have been elected to the Académie Française. Green's religious preoccupations, morbid at times, are reflected in his paranoid characters and hallucinatory language. Referring to one of Green's novels, which he praises for the 'rigour of its inventiveness', Borges compares it to Henry James's Turn of the Screw and Kafka's Trial (Preface to Bioy Casares's La invención de Morel)" (82)
