Traveling 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 the writer 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.
Moore is the author of such highly regarded works as "The Luck of Ginger Coffey," "The Catholics," "Black Robe" and "The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne", three of which have been turned into feature films.
