Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A renowned British travel writer's chronicle of his 1200-mile walking trip from Holland to Hungary in 1934 at the age of eighteen provides insight into a Europe hovering on the brink of World War II.

Review:
Nothing short of a masterpiece ( Jan Morris)

This is a traveller's tale at its infectious and informative best; vividly remembered and beautifully written ( Church Times)

"[Patrick Leigh Fermor] stands beside Robert Byron as the finest travel writer of his generation." Colin Thubron. ( Sunday Telegraph)

Every page of this book is distinguished by an image, a metaphor, a flash of humour always original and sometimes as incisive as a laser beam. ( Vincent Cronin)

'A Time of Gifts' is a treasure chest of descriptive writing and contains compelling glimpses of the events which were curdling Europe then. ( Spectator)

Review

Review:
