A Handbook for the aspiring Polymath,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Time of Gifts: On Foot to Constantinople: from the Hook of Holland to the Middle Danube (Paperback)
This is a life enhancing book. The narrative and historical context of Leigh Fermor's youthful walk across pre-war Europe is reward enough for purchasing it. However, his superb prose style, and depth of learning, elevate it to the status of a modern classic.
