In Tearing Haste

I really enjoy reading collections of letters. It is now a list art form that I cannot see being replaced by email exchanges.

In Tearing Haste is a collection of letters between Deborah Devonshire (of Chatsworth fame) and Patrick Leigh Fermor the WW2 hero in Crete.

The letters are enlightening and cover a fascinating period of history. It is a glimpse into a lifestyle that very few of us will ever directly experience.

Highly Recommended.
