More Joy in Heaven is a novel written by Canadian author Morley Callaghan and published in 1937.
The central figure, Kip Caley, was inspired by Norman "Red" Ryan (1895-1936), a criminal who had committed a number of robberies in Quebec, Ontario and the United States.
Callaghan's friend Ernest Hemingway had also considered writing a novel based on Ryan's life. As a reporter for The Toronto Daily Star, Hemingway had covered the criminal in 1925.
Powerful and moving Story of an Ex-Criminal's struggle for regeneration.
