The dust that falls from dreams a novel by Louis De Bernières( Sound Recording )
10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 187 libraries worldwide
In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. With their neighbors, the two Pitt brothers and the three Pendennis boys, they are "The Pals." But these days of childhood camaraderie and adventure are brought to an abrupt end by the outbreak of World War I, in which some will lose their lives, some their loved ones, some their faith, and all of them their innocence. We follow them through the years of the war--in the trenches, in air battles, in the hospitals where the women serve with as much passion and nearly as much hardship as the men at the front--and its aftermath as the modern world slowly emerges out of the ashes of the old. We come to know intimately this vibrant and eclectic cast of characters, and to see how the connections of their childhood reach deep into their adult lives, the fate of each reverberating in the lives of the others. And at the center is Rosie--in love with one of The Pals and beloved by another--who, in the end, will emerge from tragedy into a profound understanding of what it means to love, not just deeply, but well
Red dog by Louis De Bernières( Sound Recording )
24 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
Red Dog is a West Australian, a lovable friendly red kelpie who found widespread fame as a result of his habit of travelling all over Western Australia, hitching rides over thousands of miles, settling in places for months at a time and adopting new families before heading off again to the next destination and another family - sometimes returning to say hello years later. While visiting Australia, Louis de Bernieres heard the legend of Red Dog and decided to do some research on this extraordinary story. After travelling to Western Australia and meeting countless people who'd known and loved Red Dog, Louis decided to spread Red Dog's fame a little further. The result is an utterly charming tale of an amazing dog with places to go and people to see. Red Dog will delight readers and animal lovers of all ages
A partisan's daughter by Louis De Bernières( Book )
18 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 136 libraries worldwide
A love story at once raw and sweetly funny, wry and heartbreakingly sad. Chris is bored, lonely, trapped in a loveless, sexless marriage. In his forties, he's a stranger to the 1970s youth culture of London, a stranger to himself on the night he invites a hooker into his car. Roza is Yugoslavian, recently moved to London, the daughter of one of Tito's partisans. She's in her twenties, but has already lived a life filled with danger, misadventure, romance, and tragedy. And though she's not a hooker, when she's propositioned by Chris, she gets into his car anyway. Over the next few months Roza tells Chris the stories of her past. Does Chris hear the stories through the filter of his own need? Does it even matter? This deeply moving novel of their unlikely love - narrated in the moment and through recollection, each of their voices deftly realized - is also a brilliantly subtle commentary on storytelling
Sunday morning at the centre of the world : a play for voices by Louis De Bernières( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 116 libraries worldwide
Taking his inspiration from Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, de Bernières chose to celebrate his ten years in the south London suburb, living above a small shop that had been by turns an outlet for oversized naughty clothes for transvestites, a West Indian hairdresser and a junk shop, by writing of the people that he had known and come to love in his time there. Brilliantly capturing the myriad voices of modern Britain with their different rhythms of speech and accents, their humour and their tragedy, jokes and gossip, this tour de force takes us to the heart of a community and its spirit - the lives of its people. This work was first broadcast on BBC radio in 1998 and was performed at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea in 1999 and 2000
