9780099437574: Louis de Bernières: The Essential Guide:

In Vintage Living Texts teachers and students will find the essential guide to the works of Louis de Bernières. Vintage Living Texts is unique in that it offers an in-depth interview with Louis de Bernières, relating specifically to the texts under discussion.

This guide will deal with de Bernières' themes, genre and narrative technique, and a close reading of the texts will be accompanied with likely exam questions, and contexts and comparisons - as well as providing a rich source of ideas for intelligent and inventive ways of approaching the novels.

Also included in this guide are detailed reading plans for all four novels, questions for essays and discussion, contextual material, suggested texts for complimentary and comparative reading, extracts from reviews, a biography, a bibliography and a glossary of literary terms.

Review:

This is a terrific series... The tone is authoritative but never dogmatic, while the style is enthusiastic and approachable. -- The English Magazine, no.47 Winter 2002/3

From the Author:

Each Vintage Living Text starts with an interview with the author, conducted for the series. After that, the emphasis is on you, the reader, and on your developing response to the novel. This innovative approach retains the excitement of reading for oneself: this guide is definitely not for readers who like to be lectured or who want a substitute for reading the novels. If on the other hand you want a well-informed, accessible guide that will introduce you to an author’s work, set it in context, and suggest lots of intelligent ways into the novels themselves – then here it is.
