The first new novel in a decade from the bestselling author of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, The Dust That Falls From Dreams is a sweeping story of love and loss in the Great War. Rosie McCosh and her sisters have a peaceful and happy childhood in Kent until the Edwardian age dissolves into chaos. They are forced to grow up quickly and salvage what happiness they can in a complicated new world.

A much-loved writer and musician with a flair for exotic locales and historic settings, Louis de Bernières’ most recent books are Birds Without Wings and A Partisan’s Daughter, the short story collection Notwithstanding and poetry collection Imagining Alexandria. The Washington Post called him ‘a master storyteller.’ He will be in conversation with Libby Tempest.
