Summary
The long-awaited final volume of the trilogy by Patrick Leigh Fermor A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water were the first two volumes in a projected trilogy that would describe the walk that Patrick Leigh Fermor undertook at the age of eighteen from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople. 'When are you going to finish Vol. III?' was the cry from his fans; but although he wished he could, the words refused to come. The curious thing was that he had not only written an early draft of the last part of the walk, but that it predated the other two. It remains unfinished but The Broken Road - edited and introduced by Colin Thubron and Artemis Cooper - completes an extraordinary journey
Summary
Finally arriving on bookshelves is the long-awaited last travelogue in a trilogy that traces the year-long sojourn across 1933 Europe by 18-year-old Patrick Leigh Fermor, who then "thought himself a failure" but later became one of the best travel writers the world has known. Using Fermor's almost-finished manuscript, which melds lush descriptions with history and fascinating adventures, biographer Artemis Cooper and travel author Colin Thubron edited this book after Fermor's death at the age of 96. Erudite readers and lovers of lyrical language will embrace this delightful read, which covers Bulgaria, Romania, and Greece; those who haven't read Fermor will want to pick up A Time of Gifts, about the 1st leg of his eye-opening journey that began in Holland. -- Description by Dawn Towery
