If like me you’ve been reading Patrick Leigh Fermor’s books recently, then you might be interested in this article which was in the Travel section of the Guardian on Saturday. It’s about Kevin Rushby’s visit to Greece’s Mani peninsula, where Fermor lived for many years.
Artemis Cooper’s biography, Patrick Leigh Fermor, An Adventure will be published by John Murray on 11 October.
Fermor’s unfinished third volume of his walk across Europe in the 1930s will be published by John Murray in 2013.
You can see an audio slideshow of the Mani peninsula here.
It looks really lovely but, even if I could be bothered with the journey there, I think it would be too hot for me.
