About this book
An authorised biography of Patrick Leigh Fermor, a war hero whose exploits in Crete are legendary, and above all a widely acclaimed travel writer. His books about his walk across pre-war Europe were notable, and he was a self-educated polymath and a lover of Greece. Draws on years of interviews and conversations, as well as his extensive archives.
The authorized biography shortlisted for Waterstones Book of the Year, the National Book Awards and the Costa Biography Award
