Review

'Remarkable…seldom in modern fiction has any character been revealed so completely or been made to seem so poignantly real.' New York Times

'I can't think of another living male novelist who writes about women with such sympathy and understanding.' Times Literary Supplement

'Moore is surely one of the most versatile and compelling novelists writing today.' Daily Telegraph

'A powerful haunting story by a young Irish-Canadian who knows the meaning not only of loneliness, but that of compassion as well.' New York Times

'An almost classic example of the power given by unity of theme…Moore reveals all the qualities of a born novelist.' Sunday Times

Praise for Brian Moore:

‘From his first to his last novel, Moore has an uncanny ability to imagine his way into the emotions and sexuality of his characters…there aren’t many writers who do this comparably well – Flaubert, Chekhov, Julian Barnes, William Trevor come to mind.’ Hermione Lee

‘Brian Moore leads the field with a style that can only be called immaculate.’ Guardian

‘Brian Moore’s versatility, his lifelong refusal to keep writing the same book over again, is too much taken for granted. He writes simply and economically, but with a true generosity of vision.’ Observer

From the Back Cover

Judith Hearne is a single woman of modest means, whose life is bereft of excitement until, on moving to a new boarding house, she meets James Madden. Lively and debonair, he has recently returned from New York, where he was 'in the hotel business right on Times Square'. Charmed by his seemingly amorous pursuit of her, Judith Hearne begins to dream of a brighter future – is she too late for love, or dare she let herself hope?

Brian Moore's extraordinary talent was immediately recognised when ' The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne', his debut novel, won the Author's Club First Novel Award. A highly-acclaimed film based on the novel was recently made, starring Maggie Smith.

"I can't think of another living male novelist who writes about women with such sympathy and understanding."
