Inhaltsangabe: 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.
Vom Verlag: 'Moore is surely one of the most versatile and compelling novelists writing today.' Daily Telegraph
Brian Moore's extraordinary talent was immediately recognised when The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne, his debut novel, won the Authors' 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.' Times Literary Supplement
'Remarkable... seldom in modern fiction has any character been revealed so completely or been made to seem so poignantly real.' New York Times
'An almost classic example of the power given by unity of theme... Mr Moore reveals all the qualities of a born novelist.' Sunday Times
