Louis de Bernières (born 8 December 1954) is an English novelist. He is perhaps best known for his 1994 historical war novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin was published in the following year, winning the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book. It was also shortlisted for the 1994 Sunday Express Book of the Year
