More Durrell Family Adventures on Corfu

As fans of the PBS Masterpiece Theater series, The Durrells in Corfu know, the enchanted Greek island of Corfu was home to Gerald Durrell and his family for five years before the Second World War. For the passionate young animal lover, Corfu was a natural paradise, teeming with strange birds and beasts that he could collect, watch, and care for. As Durrell writes in his foreword, “It portrays a very important part of my life…which is a truly happy and sunlit childhood.”
