The long-awaited final volume of Patrick Leigh Fermor's epic travelogue takes him though Rumania and Bulgaria, along the Black Sea coast to Istanbul, and on to the Greek monastery island of Mount Athos. Still unfinished at his death in 2011, it has been sensitively completed, using extracts from his 'Green Diary', by Colin Thubron and Artemis Cooper, and does not disappoint: Fermor's powers of evocation are as magical as ever.
