    Description
    Cephallonia

    Dr Iannis, his daughter Pelagia, Captain Corelli and the others are but brilliant creations of the imagination, but the backdrop against which their lives and losses and dramas are played out in no fiction. The real Cephallonia is every bit as fascinating and intriguing as the island portrayed in the captivating novel.

    Here, in the superb photographs taken by Terry Harris, are the myriad faces of the island: tiny alleyways, bustling fishing harbours, the ever-present expanses of sea and sky, and the real-life counterparts of Father Arsenios and the local fishermen, all caught in his observant lens.

    Andy Harris retells the island's enduring myths and its turbulent history, shaped by pirates and earthquakes, Byzantine emperors and Venetian nobility. Words and pictures together capture the spirit of a magical place where past and present, fact and fiction are woven seamlessly together.
