This second volume of Leigh Fermor's letters contain glimpses of the great and the good- a chance conversation with the Foreign Secretary, Anthony Eden, when Paddy opens the wrong door, or a glass of ouzo under the pine trees with Harold Macmillan. They describe encounters with such varied figures as Jackie Onassis, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Oswald Mosley and Peter Mandelson, while also relating adventures such as a drunken celebration in the Cretan mountains with his old comrades from the Resistance. His exuberant and gentle nature shines through in his letters.
