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. Ostracised at first, he proves in time to be peace-loving, humorous - and a consummate musician. A burgeoning love with the local doctor's daughter, whose letters to her fiance - and members of the underground - go unanswered, seems inevitable. But can it survive as a war of bestial savagery gets closer and the lines are drawn between invader and defender?

"A wonderful epic novel" The Times "Louis de Bernieres is in the direct line that runs through Dickens and Evelyn Waugh... he has only to look into his world, one senses, for it to rush into reality, colours and touch and taste" 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 "Captain Corelli's Mandolin is a wonderful, hypnotic novel of fabulous scope and tremendous, iridescent charm - and you can quote me" -- Joseph Heller
