The Luck of Ginger Coffey by Brian Moore

Ginger

Meet Ginger Coffey, the irrepressible fortune-hunter of Brian Moore’s award-winning novel. The Luck of Ginger Coffey is the robust, funny, sometimes tragic tale of one unforgettable Irish immigrant to Montreal. Buoyed by unfailing optimism, Ginger confronts the ugly realities of life in the New World. Jobs are scarce, people are often inhuman, and dreams of glory do not offer any lasting escape from the hard pinch of poverty.

In spite of the battering he receives in his struggle for survival, Ginger Coffey emerges a true hero – a man who can be defeated by anything, except life itself.
