Louis de Bernières Biography

Louis De Bernières Comments:

I like to read and write books on a grand scale. I am interested in situations where ordinary people are caught up in abuses of power or historical crises and events. I disapprove of "genre" literature. I have hundreds of influences, but was moved to to want to become a writer by Nicholas Monsarratt's "The Cruel Sea." I am much influence by the great Latin American writers, by Tolstoy and Cervantes, and by my studies in philosophy.
