Louis de Bernières, who lives in Norfolk, published his first novel in 1990 and was selected by Granta magazine as one of the twenty Best of Young British Novelists in 1993. Since then he has become well known internationally as a writer and his sixth novel, Birds Without Wings, came out in 2004. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (1994), won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Novel. A Partisan’s Daughter 2008, was shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award and his new book, Notwithstanding: Stories from an English Village a lovely collection of stories inspiredby life in the English village in which the author grew up.

‘The cumulative effect is comic, benignly forgiving and shot through with threads of nostalgic regret... Bernières has a big heart.’ The Independent

‘delightful collection…exquisitely told.’ Daily Mail
