Inhaltsangabe: Those who know the author as a man of action and a travel writer of distinction will find here a different kind of journey but with the same fine art of description and reflection, for it is a graphic account of his travels to the Benedictine abbey of St Wandrille, the abbey of Solesmes, the Cistercian monastery of La Grande Trappe, and the rock monasteries of Cappadocia. Patrick Leigh Fermor includes his thoughts on the benefit of occasional retreat into the discipline and calm of the cloister.
About the Author:
Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915-2011) was an intrepid traveler, a heroic soldier, and a writer with a unique prose style. After his stormy schooldays, followed by the walk across Europe to Constantinople that begins in A Time of Gifts (1977) and continues through Between the Woods and the Water (1986), he lived and traveled in the Balkans and the Greek Archipelago. His books Mani (1958) and Roumeli (1966) attest to his deep interest in languages and remote places. In the Second World War he joined the Irish Guards, became a liaison officer in Albania, and fought in Greece and Crete. He was awarded the DSO and OBE. He lived partly in Greece—in the house he designed with his wife, Joan, in an olive grove in the Mani—and partly in Worcestershire. He was knighted in 2004 for his services to literature and to British–Greek relations.
Karen Armstrong, a historian of religion, spent seven years in a Roman Catholic religious order; she has written about this experience in Through the Narrow Gate and The Spiral Staircase. She is also the author of many books, including A History of God, The Great Transformation, and, most recently, The Bible: A Biography.
