The Cat in the Treble Clef

Summary

A beautiful collection of poems from bestselling author Louis de Bernières.

From the very start of his writing career Louis de Bernières has loved poetry. Here the author of the much-loved Captain Corelli’s Mandolin returns to this first love with his third collection.
