"One of the finest writers of our time."--Ian Thomson, The Guardian
"An entertainment, a theological Twilight Zone episode, a modernized Bernadette of Lourdes."--Kirkus
While living in Canada, Moore wrote his first three novels, The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne, The Feast of Lupercal, and The Luck of Ginger Coffey, the first two set in Belfast, the third in Montreal. In 1959 he moved to the United States, but Canada continued to play a role in his later novels, including I Am Mary Dunne, The Great Victorian Collection, and Black Robe. His many honours included two Governor General's Awards for Fiction.
Brian Moore died in Malibu, California, in 1999.
