This book contains Alexandre Dumas’s 1844 novella, “The Corsican Brothers - A Novel”.

It is the tale of two brothers who, after being conjoined and separated when very young, are still able to sense the spine of the other. A moving story that has been adapted for stage and film numerous times, “The Corsican Brothers” would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf, and is not to be missed by fans of Dumas's work.

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo". Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. His novels have since been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures.

Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
