Patrick Leigh Fermor

For the lover of travel writing Patrick Leigh Fermor is iconic, an intriguing blend of romance and mindfulness. He could be Matthew Arnold’s scholar gypsy of the twentieth century. In ravishing prose he recalls adventures walking all over Europe in titles such as A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, and Mani: Travels in the Southern Peloponnese. In this biography Artemis Cooper is able to draw upon years of interviews, providing a balanced yet affectionate portrait of a man whose gifts really were enviable.
