New. Tight binding with clean text. New. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 248 p. Audience: General/trade. Originally published in 1969 but long out of print, Durrell's dazzling sequel to "My Family and Other Animals" is based on his boyhood on the Greek Island of Corfu from 1935 to 1939 and filled with charming observations, amusing anecdotes, boyhood memories, and childlike wonder.
This book by Gerald Durrell is another in his trilogy of books chronicling his (and his family's) time spent in Corfu, Greece in the pre-WWII years, infused with his love of animals, the local people and the landscape in those halcyon years. A wonderful trilogy of books.
