Description

My Family and Other Animals is the bewitching account of a rare and magical childhood on the island of Corfu by treasured British conservationist Gerald Durrell. Escaping the ills of the British climate the Durrell family – acne-ridden Margo gun-toting Leslie bookworm Lawrence and budding naturalist Gerry along with their long-suffering mother and Roger the dog – take off for the island of Corfu. But the Durrells find that reluctantly they must share their various villas with a menagerie of local fauna – among them scorpions geckos toads bats and butterflies. Recounted with immense humour and charm My Family and Other Animals is a wonderful account of a rare magical childhood. ‘Durrell has an uncanny knack of discovering human as well as animal eccentricities’ Sunday Telegraph ‘A bewitching book’ Sunday Times
