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 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 Bernleres 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 smoothnes s 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"
