Thomas Keneally, author of the Booker winning Schindler’s Ark (later made into the award winning film Schindler’s List by Steven Spielberg), is an undoubted master of his art, managing to weave historical fiction into contemporary relevancy.
Napoleon’s Last Island tells the tale of the preeminent dictator’s last years in exile, on the island of St Helena. Whilst there, he forms an unlikely friendship with the youthful Betsy Balcombe and her English family. Exploring the interception of those who are normal and those we deem exceptional, the novel pulsates with acts of vengeance, duplicity and loyalty.
