Cap­tain Corelli’s Man­dolin

Friday - - GREAT READS -

Louis de Bernières (1994)

The course of true love never runs smoothly and so it goes for the beau­ti­ful Greek, Pe­la­gia, and Ital­ian sol­dier Cap­tain Corelli, whose most cher­ished pos­ses­sion is his man­dolin. Bernières epic war­time ro­mance set on the pic­turesque Greek is­land of Cephalo­nia is a love story like no other, made even more fa­mous by the (2011) film star­ring Ni­cholas Cage and Pene­lope Cruz. Com­ing from op­po­site camps in the Sec­ond World War, Pe­la­gia and Corelli’s for­bid­den courtship has to nav­i­gate po­lit­i­cal and na­tional al­le­giances, Pe­la­gia’s fi­ancé the fish­er­man Man­daras, and war­time tur­moil. In­fused with the beat­ing pulse of mu­sic, you’ll fall for this love story again and again.
