It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Cephallonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscientious but far from fanatical soldier, whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilised, humorous - and a consummate musician. When the local doctor's daughter's letters to her fiance - a member of the underground - go unanswered, the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable. But can this fragile love survive as a war of bestial savagery gets closer and the lines are drawn between invader and defender?
Louis de Bernieres is the best-selling author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin. His most recent novels are Birds Without Wings and A Partisan's Daughter.
"A tall tale and a serious work of literature...its reputation suggests that one "should" read it, and so far I would have to agree" -- Nigel Rodenhurst Times Higher Education "A wonderful epic novel" The Times "Louis de Bernieres is the direct line that runs through Dickens and Evelyn Waugh... His novel will give pleasure to all sorts of readers" -- A.S. Byatt Evening Standard "An emotional, funny, stunning novel which swings with wide smoothness between joy and bleakness, personal lives and history... It's lyrical and angry, satirical and earnest" Observer "A master of haunted realism. His best novel yet. He deals with death and love and tragedy... This is a novel to be prized" Daily Mail
