It is circa 50 BC in Corsica: The streets and the atmosphere are filled with the smell of vengeance and vendetta, fueled by a fierce and misplaced sense of family pride and honour. Resistance, fighting, planning and intrigue are in the air. This is the setting of Asterix in Corsica.

Asterix and his friend and accomplice, Obelix, happen to meet a new ally named Chief Boneywasawarriorwayayix, a Corsican chieftain who was a prisoner of Julius Caesar. Together, they try and foil the diabolical plans of the corrupt and deceitful Praetor Perfidius.

Asterix in Corsica, published by Asterix in 2007, is available in paperback.

Key Features:

I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. THE TIMES
