“I’ve attached a photograph of Paddy & Joan’s villa at Kalymitsis which I shot from a motor-boat my wife and I had hired on Stoupa beach. I wouldn’t have published it during his life as being too intrusive. He has always seemed to me, whether he be studying, conversing, charming, carousing and now and then writing (John Murray said of him “Paddy is easily distracted”), as a man who “fills the unforgiving minute”. He has been a hero of mine since I was eleven and my dad took us to see “Ill Met by Moonlight” and I was captured by Greece, Rembetico, adventure, and at 68 I’ve a fair few adventures of my own! But, no talent to write alas, and that is the beauty of Paddy’s work that his sense of place and time are made available to us all in angelic prose not to say poetry. “ Howard Patrick
