The Lonely Passion of Brian Moore

Top of page

Travelling from California to Belfast to London to Montréal, Irish-born Canadian author Brian Moore reveals the creative impulse behind the fifteen novels he has written over the last thirty years. Moore's superb public readings, interviews with friends and family, glimpses of the literary world he inhabits, and movie excerpts from his books and screenplays evoke Moore as a man in exile everywhere except in front of a typewriter. Compelling insights are given into how biography and imagination join in one writer's art.
