\n\n

As a teenager, Patrick Leigh Fermor made his way across Europe, as recounted in his memoirs classic, a time of rewards and between forest and water. During the Second World War he fought with local partisans against the Nazi occupiers of Crete. But in a moment of silence, Leigh Fermor writes about a much more intimate journey, describing his a number of sojourns in some of the oldest and most venerable monasteries of Europe. He lives at the Abbey of Saint-Wandrille, a wonderful repository of art and understanding at Solesmes, well-known for its renewal of Gregorian chant, and the very ascetic Trappist monastery of La Grande Trappe, where monks are vow of silence. Finally, he visited the monasteries of Cappadocia, hewn into the rocky peaks like a moon landscape, where he seeks some trace of the lives of early Christian hermits. Much more
a story or a newspaper, nonetheless, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the importance of silence and loneliness of modern life. The A Time to Keep Silence (New York Review Books Classics)
