About this title

Synopsis:

Captain Corelli's Island: Cephallonia is a book for all who are drawn to the islands of Greece. Recalling the hypnotic detail of Louis de Bernière's novel, Corelli's Mandolin, Andy Harris highlights the history and appeal of Cephallonia, the novel's setting, while Terry Harris' color-saturated photos display the sun-kissed terrain—from the mountains where the partisans hid to the ocean where fishermen still spend their days. The ambience of the island—sun, sea, light, food and drink, and festivals—as well as its people, are artfully captured in image and word. It is a fine companion for admirers of the novel as well as visitors to the Greek Isles.

From Library Journal:

This picture-laden travel book explores the history, culture, geography, and climate of the largest of Greece's Ionian islands, Cephallonia. The island recently received attention because it was the setting for Louis de Berni res's best-selling novel, Corelli's Mandolin (the movie came out in April), but as the Harris brothers (Taste of the Aegean) outline here, its colorful and fascinating history should be reason enough for this sudden popularity. The island has been fought over since the Bronze Age and was the hideaway for poets Barbarossa and Lord Byron. It also has been home to many destructive earthquakes and a massacre of Italian troops by the Germans in World War II. The photographs of the dramatic landscape and fascinating people are breathtaking. The appendix includes names and addresses of museums as well as lodging information. There is also a comprehensive bibliography and an index. The result is an excellent companion for those visiting the Greek Isles and a thrill for armchair travelers and history buffs.
