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.
