Summary
'Dashing for the Post', the first selection of letters from Patrick Leigh Fermor (known to all as 'Paddy'), delighted critics and public alike. Here now is a further selection offering equal pleasure. Paddy's exuberant letters exude a zest characteristic of the man. They 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 with the humble: a 'pick-nick' with the stonemasons at Kardamyli, or a drunken celebration in the Cretan mountains with his old comrades from the resistance, most of them simple shepherds and goatherds
