Ireland was too small for Ginger Coffey. No matter how hard he tried to get on, he just ended up as a glorified errand boy. That was why he emigrated to Canada with his wife and daughter – certain that there, his manifold talents would be recognised.
By the time he has spent the passage money home, and a top newspaper job has turned out to be nothing more than reading proofs for a pittance, Ginger is ready to try anything. Even driving a van delivering fresh nappies to Montreal's young mothers – and collecting the dirty ones. After all, it is only temporary… and things can't get any worse… can they?
"Moore is surely one of the most compelling novelists writing today."
"Brian Moore's versatility, his life-long 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."
"There can be no novelist today who can match him for imaginative scope."
ANITA BROOKNER, 'Evening Standard'
"Moore is a brilliant storyteller, a novelist of great subtlety and depth."
