Description
The third unfinished volume of Leigh Fermor's enchanted journey through Mitteleuropa is in paperback at last. The author is arguably more present in loving editorial hands than in any of his other books. There is also that infectious enthusiasm for the road and the lived experience, for spoken language, oral knowledge and for everything Byzantine and Greek.

The pleasure lies in its combination of erudition, exuberant speculation, lively anecdote and meticulous, picture-painting language. SUNDAY TIMES
