Summary
Finally arriving on bookshelves is the long-awaited last travelogue in a trilogy that traces the year-long sojourn across 1933 Europe by 18-year-old Patrick Leigh Fermor, who then "thought himself a failure" but later became one of the best travel writers the world has known. Using Fermor's almost-finished manuscript, which melds lush descriptions with history and fascinating adventures, biographer Artemis Cooper and travel author Colin Thubron edited this book after Fermor's death at the age of 96. Erudite readers and lovers of lyrical language will embrace this delightful read, which covers Bulgaria, Romania, and Greece; those who haven't read Fermor will want to pick up A Time of Gifts, about the 1st leg of his eye-opening journey that began in Holland. -- Description by Dawn Towery
