Louis De Berniéres's six best books

Louis De Berniéres is the author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin and other books. One of his six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
LONESOME DOVE by Larry McMurtry

A phenomenal epic about driving stolen cattle hundreds of miles across America. I worked on a ranch in South America for a year so know what it’s like to round up cattle on horseback: the smell of your horse, the dust kicked up and the sound of hooves. My copy is utterly mangled because I read it in the bath.
Read about the other books on the list.

Lonesome Dove may just be The Great Texas Novel. It is among Ann Brashares' six favorite books.
