Book condition

Very good first edition, with some bleaching to top and bottom of spine, and a small tear to top of spine. Slight foxing to top and side of page block. In a very good price-clipped dust jacket with chipping to spine and corners. Some light loss of colour to spine.



About

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.

The basis of ITV's 'The Durrells'
