Transporting us to all corners of the globe, the tales in Louis de Bernieres' worldly and entertaining collection Labels and Other Stories feature a cast of unlikely and unforgettable heroes who can be found collecting luxury tinned cat-food labels, posting fish to the President, falling in love with dolphin deities and dining with Brazilian street thieves.

Full of wit, charm and warmth, Labels and Other Stories shows the imaginative range and unique storytelling power of one of our msot treasured writers.

Labels and Other Stories Reviews

A witty and warm collection -- Valerie Grove * The Times *
This entertaining collection of 14 short stories showcases all the familiar tropes, stylistic flourishes and trademark deadpan humour that make their author such a pleasure... A delight -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday *
Delightfully imaginative stories * i *
These stories often read like fairy tales for adults, and seem intended, above all, to raise a smile... they do this very nicely... Labels is an amusing and clever story, its absurdist tone well fitted to its subject -- William Skidelsky * Financial Times *
Louis de Bernieres is a very genial observer of human folly. These stories are warm and witty, peopled with fallible characters at the mercy of their own prejudices and insecurities -- Eithne Farry * Daily Mail *
