    Thank you for these mini-reviews. I find it especially poignant that Fermor wrote this in the 1970s by referring back to his notebooks from four decades earlier. Methinks that while some details may have been forgotten or mis-remembered, the book probably benefits from the author’s hindsight. Forty years is a long time for a person to digest the meaning of an experience and derive some wisdom out of it. Perhaps if he’d written and published the book too soon, it would have been very different, as it would have been coming from the perspective of a much younger man.
