A time to keep silence
Patrick Leigh Fermor played a suspenseful and successful role behind the lines in the Battle of Crete during World War II. Later he became famous for his travel literature. With the face of “a hawk with a sense of humor”, cool in a crisis and dangerously capable, he had an admirable capacity for both self-sacrifice and pleasure.
He wrote about some of his adventures. One was markedly different from the others. This was his journey to several monasteries. A Time to Keep Silence speaks about the meaning of silence and solitude in modern life. It has just been reissued.
May your week be good.
