Corelli's mandolin by Louis De Bernières( Book )

260 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in 22 languages and held by 3,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A captivating and mystical story of life and love during the wartime Italian occupation of the isolated Greek island of Cephallonia. Extravagant, inventive, emotionally sweeping, this rich and lyrical, heartbreaking and hilarious novel has been widely hailed as a classic. Set on the peaceful island of Cephallonia, just as the horrors of World War II reach its remote shores, Corelli's Mandolin is "an exuberant mixture of history and romance, written with a wit that is incandescent" (Los Angeles Times Book Review). Corelli's Mandolin is the story of a timeless place that one day wakes up to find itself in the jaws of history. The place is the Greek island of Cephallonia, where gods once dabbled in the affairs of men and the local saint periodically rises from his sarcophagus to cure the mad. Then the tide of World War II rolls onto the island's shores in the form of the conquering Italian army. Caught in the midst of the occupation are Pelagia, a willful, beautiful young woman, and the two suitors vying for her love and affection: Mandras, a gentle fisherman turned ruthless, murderous guerilla, and the charming, mandolin-playing Captain Corelli, a reluctant officer of the Italian garrison on the island. Rich with loyalties and betrayals, and set against a landscape where the factual blends seamlessly with the fantastic, Corelli's Mandolin is a passionate novel as rich in ideas as it is genuinely moving

In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era the McCosh sisters--Christabel, Ottilie, Rosie and Sophie--grow up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. On one side, their neighbors are the proper Pendennis family, recently arrived from Baltimore, whose close-in-age boys--Sidney, Albert and Ashbridge--shake their father's hand at breakfast and address him as "sir." On the other side is the Pitt family: a "resolutely French" mother, a former navy captain father, and two brothers, Archie and Daniel, who are clearly "going to grow up into a pair of daredevils and adventurers." In childhood this band is inseparable, but the days of careless camaraderie are brought to an abrupt halt by the outbreak of The Great War, in which everyone will play a part

"Red Dog was a kind of ultra-Kelpie, energetic and clever enough for an entire breed in himself. Dubbed a "professional traveler" rather than a stray, Red Dog established his own transportation system, hitchhiking between far-flung towns and female dogs in cars whose engine noises he'd memorized and whose drivers he's charmed."--Jacket

The dust that falls from dreams : a novel by Louis De Bernières( Recording )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. With their neighbors, the two Pitt brothers and the three Pendennis boys, they are "The Pals." But these days of childhood camaraderie and adventure are brought to an abrupt end by the outbreak of World War I, in which some will lose their lives, some their loved ones, some their faith, and all of them their innocence. We follow them through the years of the war--in the trenches, in air battles, in the hospitals where the women serve with as much passion and nearly as much hardship as the men at the front--and its aftermath as the modern world slowly emerges out of the ashes of the old. We come to know intimately this vibrant and eclectic cast of characters, and to see how the connections of their childhood reach deep into their adult lives, the fate of each reverberating in the lives of the others. And at the center is Rosie--in love with one of The Pals and beloved by another--who, in the end, will emerge from tragedy into a profound understanding of what it means to love, not just deeply, but well

Red Dog is a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of travelling all over Western Australia, hitching rides over thousands of miles, settling in places for months at a time and adopting new families before heading off again to the next destination and another family, sometimes returning to say hello years later. While visiting Australia, Louis de Bernieres heard the legend of Red Dog and decided to do some research on this extraordinary story. After travelling to Western Australia and meeting countless people who'd known and loved Red Dog, Louis decided to spread Red Dog's fame a little further. The result is an utterly charming tale of an amazing dog with places to go and people to see. Red Dog will delight readers and animal lovers of all ages

Sunday morning at the centre of the world : a play for voices by Louis De Bernières( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking his inspiration from Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, de Bernières chose to celebrate his ten years in the south London suburb, living above a small shop that had been by turns an outlet for oversized naughty clothes for transvestites, a West Indian hairdresser and a junk shop, by writing of the people that he had known and come to love in his time there. Brilliantly capturing the myriad voices of modern Britain with their different rhythms of speech and accents, their humour and their tragedy, jokes and gossip, this tour de force takes us to the heart of a community and its spirit - the lives of its people. This work was first broadcast on BBC radio in 1998 and was performed at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea in 1999 and 2000
