The second volume of exuberant, lively letters from travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor includes encounters with such varied figures as Jackie Onassis, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Oswald Mosley and Peter Mandelson . . .
It also relates adventures with the humble: a ‘pick-nick’ with the stonemasons at Kardamyli or a drunken celebration in the Cretan mountains with his old comrades from the Resistance. Paddy was at ease in any company – unfailingly charming, boyish, gentle and fun.
‘Adam Sisman should be congratulated on this feat of literary archaeology and for excavating for Paddy's fans a last marvellous treasure trove of Leigh Fermor prose’ William Dalrymple
