Default David Mason on Patrick Leigh Fermor in The Hopkins Review

I know some readers here have a deep appreciation of the writings of Patrick Leigh Fermor, so I thought you might be interested in Davey's essay on the latest book of Fermor's Letters in The Hopkins Review.

Haha!! Brilliant, Annie!

Davey says of this particular letter, "It's one masterpiece of a joke after another." He decided not to quote it in his own essay because it has been so oft-quoted in other reviews.

Thanks for posting The Batch's performance. Utterly hilarious!!

A good read! But I would not expect otherwise.
