'Splendid Folio edition' praised in the TLS

Cretan Runner one of our bestselling new titles of the year

The Cretan Runner, one of our most popular new titles, has recently been praised by the Times Literary Supplement. In the 1 January issue, James Campbell commends the 'splendid Folio edition', drawing his readers' attention to the sketches, previously unpublished photographs and correspondence reproduced with the text. As Campbell observes, Patrick Leigh Fermor's sketches of the andartes were smuggled out on a submarine (as well as being labelled with false names in case they were captured by Germans) - a fact that adds to the sense of immediacy and danger throughout the narrative. We're delighted that this wonderful autobiographical account is receiving the attention it deserves. To read more about our edition, click here.
