Durrell's hilarious and warm My Family and Other Animals (1957) began a trio of reminiscences of his life growing up with a slightly dotty family the overbearing and omniscient Larry; the affectionate and loving siblings, Margot and Leslie; and, of course, the overburdened and patient Mother on the island of Corfu in the 1930s, when a pound could buy a villa and life was conducted as a series of riotously high (and sometimes low) adventures. But what shines through these five vignettes is the author's engagement with and immense affection for animals in all their forms. From fish to fowl, from lizards to little water fleas (daphnia), Durrell's eye is acute and his prose is tart. You can read this book for the humor alone (for he did perceive his family as some rare and rarefied species), but between the lines you can discern the makings of a world-class naturalist and a cultivated and engaging writer.

Book Description David R Godine Pub, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 147 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. This is a paperbound reprint of a 1971 work. Eccentric in a rather grand English manner, the Durrells spread joy and mayhem from various corners of the empire, took in the impecunious despite the fact they despised them, attempted to keep up appearances in a life run amok, and managed to care for each other very much while calling each other mad. Gerald, brother of Lawrence (Spirit of Place, hence the title for this memoir) combines his affection, or at least grim acceptance of his truly dysfunctional family with his sincere love of animals and his work for the survival of both. He offers five essays, starting in Corfu and winding up in London and Africa, concluding with a devotional to one of the best-drawn dimwitted beauties (Ah! Ursula!) in literature. Hilarious. Annotation 2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR). Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781567923544
