Drink time!


The 70th anniversary of Patrick Leigh Fermor’s kidnapping of the German General Kreipe from Crete next year will give cause for a renewed flurry of interest in this unique character. This short book conveys a portrait of a man who ‘became indomitable, proud and charming in old age, while retaining his other attributes’. This is an original and witty study in nostalgia mixed with personal fortitude, right up until the end.
