9780006358596: Garden of the Gods

The enchanted island of Corfu was home to Gerald Durrell and his family for five years before the Second World War. For the passionate young zoologist, Corfu was a natural paradise, teeming with strange birds and beasts that he could collect, watch and care for. But life was not without its problems - Gerald's family often objected to his animal-collecting activities, especially when the beasts wound up in the family's villa or even worse - the fridge. Gerald Durrell evokes his island paradise with the passion and wonder of a small boy in the concluding novel of the warm and humorous trilogy begun with My Family and Other Animals and Birds, Beasts and Relatives.

From the Back Cover:

A SUCCESSOR TO MY FAMILY AND OTHER ANIMALS AND BIRDS, BEASTS AND RELATIVES

"To Gerald Durrell, though born in the India of the Raj, Corfu is his "happy, sunlit childhood" and 'The Garden of the Gods' is his third book celebrating it.
The first was the phenomenally successful 'My Family and Other Animals', and this new book is just as funny, though the dialogue is slightly bolder and ruder… Mr. Durrell´s evocation of (Corfu) is such stuff as dreams are made on."
KENNETH YOUNGER, 'Sunday Telegraph'

"This book, an evocation of a budding naturalist's life as a boy on Corfu, will delight many readers, even those who can't stand spiders…"
