It was one of the most notorious atrocities of World War II – and inspired the bestseller Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. 8 September 1943 proved to be a fateful day for the Acqui Division, part of the predominantly Italian force occupying Cefalonia: it was the day the Allies concluded an armistice with Italy. Confusion now reigned between the Italian and German troops stationed on the island. The Italians longed to return peacefully to their homeland, but the Germans – now their enemies – feared that the Italians might use their munitions in a hostile act. As Nazi reinforcements invaded the island, the Italian troops did something extraordinary. Following a democratic referendum involving soldiers of all ranks, rather than surrender to the Germans they elected to fight. Their stance culminated with the siege of Argostoli. The Italians bravely held out, but the Germans prevailed. Now regarding their former allies as traitors, they inflicted a terrible reprisal on the Italians in a bloody, week-long massacre. Louis de Bernières’ reflected this atrocity in his novel Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, which was brought to the big screen in 2001in an adaptation starring Nicolas Cage and Penélope Cruz. Winner of the prestigious Magnolia Award for Best TV Film at the 2006 Shanghai International TV Festival, Cefalonia is scripted by Sandro Petraglia and Stefano Rulli (Romanzo Criminale, The Best of Youth) and directed by Riccardo Milani (The Soul’s Place).

It used to be the big chains that were feared and loathed by the old-fashioned independent booksellers. Now, some of those independent bookstores are cooking up survival strategies for the rapid dawning of the eBook Age.

Hutchy - Miracle Man

Ian Hutchinson - 'Hutchy' to his many thousands of fans - is a motorcycle racer like few others. A road racer to the core, he has enjoyed spectacular success, notably at the Isle of Man TT, but his own story goes far beyond even those triumphs. In the summer of 2010, Hutchy set the record for most wins in a single TT festival - five in all - having already won the Supersport class at the North West 200 in Northern Ireland. Then disaster struck. At a British Supersport round at Silverstone in September that year, he crashed heavily and was struck by another rider's machine, breaking his left leg so badly that at one stage it was feared it might have to be amputated. After many surgical operations and a long period of recovery, he fractured the same leg in 2012 while practising exhibition-riding for a motorcycle show. Yet not even these disasters could keep the Yorkshireman from racing. After modifications to the rear-brake and gear levers on his race machines, he went out and won the 2013 Macau Grand Prix. Two years later saw an even more staggering return to form, when he secured three wins, a second and a third place at the 2015 Isle of Man TT, also winning the Joey Dunlop TT Championship Trophy for that year. And 2016 was to prove even better. Honest, brave and quirkily amusing, Hutchy: Miracle Man presents Hutchy's own accounts and opinions with those of various celebrated figures from the world of motorcycle racing. It is a book not only for fans of road racing, but for anyone interested in the life and career of a brilliant rider and an extraordinarily brave and enduring man, justly popular not just for his achievements, but for his unassuming modesty, kindness and humour.
