Erudiete avonturier leefde zijn eigen boeken

The leading Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad has published a short article to mark Paddy’s death written by Bruno Braak. Yours truly was interviewed for this and apparently I said ” He was so much more than a travel author”, says Tom Sawford, who made a website about Leigh Fermor. “Paddy expected a lot of knowledge from his readers. He wrote in-depth about history and parts in Latin, French or German untranslated”.

The title translates as “Erudite adventurer lived his own books”.
