Gerald Durrell wrote many books, but none has ever enjoyed the popularity of My Family and Other Animals. It is such a happy book, if you are ever feeling a bit down, this book will cheer you up.
Have you seen any of the film versions of it? Do you know what changes Gerald made from the real story of his family’s time on Corfu? Have you ever visited the Durrell zoo on the island of Jersey? In this monograph, you will learn more about this remarkable man (whose first word was evidently ‘zoo’) and his classic tale of an eccentric English family let loose on a Greek island.
I hope this monograph encourages you to read, or reread this fabulous story, and that you enjoy learning a bit more about the man behind the tale, the members of his family, the themes, style, and the various film versions.
One word of warning – once you have read this book, you will wary of matchboxes.
