Great introduction to Paddy Leigh Fermor,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patrick Leigh Fermor: An Adventure (Kindle Edition)
I've had the work of Fermor recommended by several people whose opinions I respect. In the end I started my introduction to him with this biography, which very much whetted my appetite for reading Fermor's own books. Some episodes were not rendered in such an entertaining way as I'd read elsewhere (e.g. the W S Maugham incident, about which I'd seen Fermor's own account in a letter on a webpage) but I still found this a thoroughly enjoyable book.
