More information about this seller Contact this seller First edition of the author's third book, regarding his experiences in various monasteries, inscribed by Leigh Fermor to Deborah of Devonshire.
Association copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, "For Darling Debo written in great haste! Leigh Fermor first met Deborah when she was still a young debutante and eventually formed a deep friendship, as well as a correspondence that would last for more than half a century. Their letters were published in book form in with the title In Tearing Haste. When something caught their interest and they knew the other would be amused, they sent off a letter-there are glimpses of President Kennedy's inauguration, weekends at Sandringham, filming with Errol Flynn, the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, and, above all, life at Chatsworth, the great house that Debo spent much of her life restoring, and of Paddy in the house that he and his wife designed and built on the Mani in Greece.
There rarely have been such contrasting styles: Debo-smart, idiosyncratic, and funny-darts from subject to subject, dashing off letters in her breezy, spontaneous style. Paddy, the polygot and widely read virtuoso, replies in the fluent polished manner that has earned him recognition as one of the finest writers in the English language.
