I read a short story where the character mentions a Graham Greene novel (or a story maybe?), which tells the story of a married couple who gets bored with life and themselves and goes to Cairo to find entertainment. Apparently they find themselves in some shady porn theater and see that the husband is one of the actors.

As the story I read was partly auobiographical, I assume that th author didn't make that novel up. Does anybody know that novel? Or was it actually made up?

That is the plot of a short story called "The Blue Film." It's about a couple going on vacation in Thailand. It's one of my favorite GG short stories.

Ha! Thank you, thank you. I read nothing but Greene for two full years. And that was a really good story.
