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.
