The Cat in the Treble Clef, Hardback Book


A beautiful collection of poems from bestselling author Louis de Bernieres. From the very start of his writing career Louis de Bernieres has loved poetry.

Here the author of the much-loved Captain Corelli's Mandolin returns to this first love with his third collection. The Cat in the Treble Clef focuses on family and the connections we make, and break, with other people.

There are moving poems to and about his family: his great grandmother, his mother and father and his children.

There are poems about places near and far, about the passing of time, music and about love in its various forms.

In this collection, de Bernieres shares his passion with his readers, in a beautifully illustrated gift edition.
