Inhaltsangabe zu „The Marvellous (But Authentic) Adventures of Captain Corcoran“ von Alfred Assollant

Introducing the Marvellous Captain Corcoran – he is charming to ladies, courteous to true gentlemen, death to pirates and merciless to the English. He speaks several languages, can bend an iron bar with his bare hands, and has adventured his way across the seven seas with his faithful friend Louison by his side. Loyal only to her master, Louison can be a little boisterous, and there’s devil to pay when she misses a meal (for Louison is a five-year-old Bengal tiger). Corcoran is commissioned by the French Academy of Sciences to seek out a lost sacred Hindu text. Once in India, he is soon distracted from his quest by the claims of Prince Holkar, his lotus-eyed daughter, and their daring stand against the English occupying forces. Beloved by many French schoolchildren (including the young Jean-Paul Sartre) at the turn of the century, the marvellous Corcoran has been too long forgotten. Sam Miller (author of Delhi) has loving translated these wild, funny, unabashedly romantic adventures into English for the first time so that the Captain and his charming Louison can be embraced by a new generation of readers, young and old.
