Summary "Patrick Leigh Fermor: Noble Encounters Between Budapest and Transylvania is the extraordinary story of how one unknown young man charmed his way into the castles, manor houses, beds and lives of some of the most influential people in a part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire which was then on the cusp of tremendous change. This book records the history of a class, as witnessed by an exceptional young outsider in 1934 and also records what happened to many of them once the grim reality of Communism took hold in this part of East-Central Europe. It is also a portrait of Budapest in 1934, a grand city about to change forever."-- Provided by the publisher
