Brian Moore burst upon the literary scene in 1955 with this moving and brilliantly observed study of a woman imprisoned by the passage of time. He went on to be hailed as one of the best fiction writers of his generation. Alone in her room in a Belfast boarding house, Judith Hearne is almost overwhelmed by loneliness. Yet she still believes there is a chance for happiness, and she waits patiently for the moment when her life will turn from sorrowful longing to joy. By chance she meets a man - the man - and her dreams take on a brighter hue, only to be dashed once more. With skill and gentle insight, Moore depicts the disintegration of Judith Hearne' s last illusions. Clinging to the bottle for comfort, she becomes a tragic figure who speaks frankly about the human condition. Though we laugh at her foibles, we weep at her plight, and share her primal longing for love and connection. This touching story was made into a critically acclaimed motion picture in 1987.

A Canadian citizen living in the United States, the Irish-born Brian Moore stands out as one of the most prolific and consistently competent novelists in the English-speaking world. From his highly acclaimed Judith Hearne of the 1950s to his recent runner-up for the Booker Prize, The Color of Blood, Moore has in his sixteen novels dramatized what it means to be caught up at the edges of all kinds of uncertainties and fears: spiritual, sexual, political, and social, where frequently the protagonist faces psychological dilemmas generated by the conflicting values of the Old World and the New. Essentially a traditional novelist, Moore has nevertheless moved from time to time into fictional experimentation, as in The Great Victorian Collection, but whatever form he chooses, he is consistent in his moral compassion for his characters and in his meticulous prose style. Introduced with a biocritical essay by Hallvard Dahlie, The Brian Moore Papers, consisting of numerous drafts of his novels, voluminous correspondence, and daily work books, offers a rich resource for the general reader and the scholarly critic.
