Letters from the Inca trail
on 21 July 2011
I became interested in Patrick Leigh Fermor after reading of his recent death. Unfortunately, the evocative, literary yet easy-to-read quality of his early work is entirely absent here and reads, like another reviewer says, as if they were dashed off in a hurry rather than meditated and worked upon.
