One of her six best books, as told to the Daily Express:
by Louis de Bernières

Set on a Greek island in the war, an Italian officer falls in love with the doctor’s daughter. It’s all there: magical realism, comedy and tragedy. The author hauls in every word that he likes so you need a dictionary. I’m a nerd so I love that. It expands you emotionally and intellectually.
