  Maurice Baring - CatholicAuthors.com
Like Chesterton, Baring converted to Catholicism partly under Belloc's influence, and it is possible, perhaps probable, that he would never have emerged as one of the foremost Catholic novelists of the century if he had never met his mercurial mentor.
Baring also brought a depth of culture that few of his generation could equal.
Baring's career as a novelist was relatively short, commencing with the publication of Passing By in 1921 when the author was already nearly 50 years old, and ending prematurely 15 years later as a result of the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease.

  Maurice Baring & the good high-brow by Joseph Epstein
Maurice Baring’s is a name one generally meets connected in a secondary or tertiary way with larger names.
Baring was of that generation of Englishmen possessed of the stiff upper lip; in his case this is sometimes forgotten, because that same lip would often collapse into a boyish smile.
In this essay, Baring obviously could not have known that he was speaking not only precisely to the posthumous condition of his own writing, but, in a wider view, even more poignantly to the artistic and intellectual life of our own day.

 A Battle Plan for Your Family
By the 1920s, when Baring had established a reputation as a Catholic novelist, he was seen in the eyes of the reading public as the third person, alongside Belloc and Chesterton, in a Catholic literary trinity.
Baring's career as a novelist was relatively short, commencing with the publication of Passing By in 1921 and ending prematurely 15 years later with the onset of the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease.
If Baring felt frustrated at being misunderstood by those who were exiled in ignorance from the faith that breathed life into his novels, he was "too moved to speak" when he learned that François Mauriac had a deep admiration for his work.
