It is a shame he never wrote about his very interesting wartime exploits. If you liked his writing, try some books by Norman Lewis, another interesting character whose journeys were more or less contemporary to Fermor's. I've read the sequel, but not the third one in the sequence. Thought he had written a book about some of the wartime stuff (the abduction of the German General that was dramatised in the film Ill met by moonlight) just before he died. Thanks for the Norman Lewis recommendation, haven't come across any of his writing (he lived in a village not too far from me, where Dodie Smith also lived.) I think "As I walked out one summers morning" by Laurie Lee is the closest thing to 'A Time of Gifts' that I've read. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
