The Garden of the GodseBook - 2016
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
At the age of ten Gerald Durrell's family settled on the Greek island of Corfu in the Adriatic Sea arm of the Mediterranean. For the young 'Gerry' Corfu was a treasure house of exotic creatures which he could watch, collect, and breed. It was not always tranquil. His older brother Lawrence ('Larry') was unreasonably vexed when he found the icebox filled with decomposing sparrows; his gun-enthusiast middle brother Leslie scared off the woman from the society for the protection of donkeys; and his sister Margo had her scheme to eliminate an over-ardent admirer by Gerry's familiarity with local peasant hospitality. Visually graphic, sharply observant, and wildly funny (!), Durrell evokes the rapture of a boy discovering the natural world. This is the second book of the acclaimed "Corfu Trilogy": My Family and Other Animals; and Birds, Beasts and Relatives.
