More About Patrick Leigh Fermor
Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915 2011) was an intrepid traveler and a heroic soldier who is widely considered to be one of the finest travel writers of the twentieth century. After his stormy schooldays, followed by the walk across Europe to Constantinople that begins in "A Time of Gifts "(1977) and continues through "Between the Woods and the Water" (1986) and "The Broken Road "(published posthumously in 2013), he lived and traveled in the Balkans and the Greek archipelago. His books "Mani" (1958) and "Roumeli" (1966) attest to his deep interest in languages and remote places. In the Second World War he joined the Irish Guards, became a liaison officer in Albania, and fought in Greece and Crete. He was awarded the DSO and OBE. Leigh Fermor lived partly in Greece in the house he designed with his wife, Joan, in an olive grove in the Mani and partly in Worcestershire. In 2004 he was knighted for his services to literature and to British Greek relations. Colin Thubron is the president of the Royal Society of Literature. Among his books are "The Lost Heart of Asia," "Shadow of the Silk Road," and most recently, "To a Mountain in Tibet." Artemis Cooper is the author of the biography "Patrick Leigh Fermor: An Adventure "as well as the editor of "Words of Mercury," a collection of Leigh Fermor's writings. She has written several works of history, including Cairo in the War."
