Roger Brunyate

Roger Brunyate was born in Northern Ireland in 1940, educated in England, earning degrees from Cambridge in English and Art History, teaching the latter at the University of Glasgow for five years. But, as a lifelong amateur musician, he moved into professional opera in 1968 (as a stage director), and worked in Europe before emigrating to the US in 1972. Since 1980, he has been professor of Opera at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore MD. Roger is active as a writer of opera libretti, translations, holiday pantomimes, and occasional journalism.

Roger got back to sustained serious reading in 2003, for the first time since college, writing about many of the books on Amazon as a means of reflection. Looking back on over 400 such reviews, if there is one thing he looks for in literature more than any other, it is its power to ask moral questions.

Roger has reviewed the following for MostlyFiction:
