The Corsican Brothers – A Novel by Alexandre Dumas

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

“The Corsican Brothers” recounts the tale of two brothers who, after being conjoined and separated when very young, are still able to sense the spine of the other. They have a truly remarkable psychic link, and can feel each others pains and triumphs. 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.
