New Patrick Leigh Fermor biography by Artemis Cooper, published this week. I bought it yesterday at one of my favourite bookshops, Heywood Hill in Curzon Street. We all had a lovely time there and came away with a nice big bag of delicious books! Just started this and I know I'm going to enjoy it.
Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor (11 February 1915 – 10 June 2011): At age 18 walked the length of Europe from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople. Arguably one of the best travel writers of our generation, his novels have inspired many great writers, notably Ian Fleming's James Bond. #JetsetterCurator
