Welcome to the official website of bestselling Australian Author
Morris West was one of the great story-tellers of the twentieth century. He wrote 28 novels, many of which were made into films. Published in 27 languages during his lifetime, his intelligent, eloquent narratives reflect a fundamental determination to tackle the deeper concerns of his time, and resulted in the sale of an estimated 70 million books worldwide.
Recently described by Mark Lawson at The Guardian as "the pope of the Vatican thriller", West's bestselling novels gained a reputation as thrillers which examine man's dilemmas and his moral conscience in a post-World War II age, assaying questions of principle and honour in the face of challenging circumstances. A man of his time, West's novels continue to resonate with a younger audience similarly confronted by a changing world.
