Críticas:

" There is only one complaint I can think of making about Patrick Leigh Fermor' s books: They appear too seldom. When they do appear, they offer that kindest of pleasures open to a reviewer- the chance of unqualified praise." - "The New York Times"
" "Mani" and "Roumeli": two of the best travel books of the century." - "Financial Times"
"" ... Mani" and "Roumeli" remain extraordinarily engaging books. This is partly thanks to Leigh Fermor' s ability to turn an insight into a telling phrase ... and partly thanks to his capacity to weave a compelling story out of sometimes unpromising material. One of the best tales of all is the hilarious digression in "Roumeli" on the attempted recovery of a pair of Byron' s slippers from a man in Missolonghi, on behalf of Byron' s very odd great-granddaughter Lady Wentworth... When you see through all the nonsense about Hellenic continuity, there is, underneath, a much more nuanced account of the ambivalences of modern Greece, its people and its myths (its own myths about itself and us, as much as our myths about it)." - Mary Beard, "The London Review of Books"
Praise for Patrick Leigh Fermor:
" [O]ne of the greatest travel writers of all time" - "The Sunday Times"
" [A] unique mixture of hero, historian, traveler and writer; the last and the greatest of a generation whose like we won't see again." - "Geographical"
" The finest traveling companion we could ever have . . . His head is stocked with enough cultural lore and poetic fancy to make every league an adventure." - "Evening Standard"

" Patrick Leigh Fermor has written great travel books besides "Roumeli" and "Mani," but I like to think that his extraordinary style is especially well suited to the subject of Greece, that the beautiful cragginess and almost blinding brilliance of his prose correspond particularly to that country s rugged, dazzled landscapes.

[Leigh Fermor] becomes fascinated by the last true nomads of the region, the Sarakatsans. His description of their wanderings is, for me, the best sort of literary geography lesson, and has even more geopolitical relevance now than when he wrote it. - Robin Hanbury-Tenison, "Geographical"

Reseña del editor:

Roumeli is not to be found on present-day maps. It is the name once given to northern Greece—stretching from the Bosporus to the Adriatic and from Macedonia to the Gulf of Corinth, a name that evokes a world where the present is inseparably bound up with the past.

Roumeli describes Patrick Leigh Fermor’s wanderings in and around this mysterious and yet very real region. He takes us with him among Sarakatsan shepherds, to the monasteries of Meteora and the villages of Krakora, and on a mission to track down a pair of Byron’s slippers at Missolonghi. As he does, he brings to light the inherent conflicts of the Greek inheritance—the tenuous links to the classical and Byzantine heritage, the legacy of Ottoman domination—along with an underlying, even older world, traces of which Leigh Fermor finds in the hills and mountains and along stretches of barely explored coast.

Roumeli is a companion volume to Patrick Leigh Fermor’s famous Mani: Travels in the Southern Peloponnese.
