Alison Moore (born 1971) is an English writer. Born in Manchester, she lives in Leicestershire.
Moore's 2012 début novel, The Lighthouse, was shortlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. In reaction to the announcement, Moore commented: "Reaching the shortlist is ridiculously exciting. I keep feeling like I ought to stop daydreaming and get on with something, but it's all real." Chair of the Booker jury, Sir Peter Stothard, described the jury's decision in the following words: "The judges admired The Lighthouse's bleak inner landscape, a temperature control set low and an impressively assured control." Before The Lighthouse, Moore had written and published several short stories, collected in The Pre-War House and Other Stories. Her second novel, He Wants, was published in 2014. Both The Lighthouse and He Wants were Observer Books of the Year.
