Summary
Louis De Bernières' unlikely and unforgettable heroes are found collecting luxury tinned cat-food labels, posting fish to the President, falling in love with dolphin deities and dining with Brazilian street thieves. And in 'Gunter Weber's confession', we return once more to the Greek island of Captain Corelli's Mandolin and its much-loved characters. In this worldly and entertaining collection of stories, we are equally enchanted by familiar and fantastical occurrences, by de Bernières' wry sense of humour and powerful imagination
Summary
In this entertaining collection of stories, Louis de Bernieres introduces us to a man who turns his life around through developing his hobby of collecting cat-food tin labels. We also meet a traveller who embarks on a confusing love affair in Colombia, a dolphin romance and, in 'Gunter Weber's Confession', we return to the much-loved characters of Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Louis de Bernieres is one of our most treasured writers and these stories show his imaginative range and unique storytelling power.
