A dashing French adventurer, a beautiful Indian princess and a wily pet Bengal tiger join hands to fight and defeat the British in India. ‘The Marvelous Adventures of Captain Corcoran’ was first published in 1867 and admired by the likes of Sartre and Zola. It’s been translated into almost every European language, except for English (due to its anti-British content). Until now.
Translated by the acclaimed writer Sam Miller, Captain Corcoran is not just a forgotten classic but a roller coaster ride through 19th century India. It’s the best adventure story you will read all year. We can’t wait to publish it.
