Louis de Bernières: Light over Liskeard
Louis de Bernières is one of the UK’s leading novelists.
His fourth novel, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, a love story set in World War II, has now sold over 4 million copies worldwide, was translated into 36 languages and has been made into a Hollywood film starring Nicolas Cage and Penélope Cruz. In his latest book, Light over Liskeard, a quantum cryptographer convinced of civilisation's fall embarks on a self-sufficient life in the Cornish countryside. In this entertaining and heart-warming novel, Louis makes us reconsider what is really precious in our short and precarious lives.
