Louis de Bernieres 'working on last epic'

24th May 2010

Captain Corelli's Mandolin author Louis de Bernieres has started writing a new novel - but claims it could be his last epic work.

In an interview with Kent News, de Bernieres revealed that he is currently busy working on his latest novel, preparing to publish a volume of poetry and waiting for two of his other books to be made into films.

'I've started writing a novel, I'm 50 pages in so far and I think it will be my last epic novel ... I don't think I have another one in me,' he explained.

The author also told the newspaper that the book may deal with a new subject matter for him, as it is looking like it could 'partly' be a ghost story.

In addition, de Bernieres said he is 'hopeful' that the film adaptation of Red Dog will prove a success, after the silver screen version of Captain Corelli's Mandolin left some fans disappointed.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin won the author the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Novel in 1995, while he has also received awards for The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts and Senor Vivo and the Coca Lord.
