NAMI BOOK CLUB

 

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17th

6:00 PM on Zoom

My Family and Other Animals is an autobiographical work by British naturalist Gerald Durrell. It tells in an exaggerated and sometimes fictionalised way of the years that he lived as a child with his siblings and widowed mother on the Greek island of Corfu between 1935 and 1939. It describes the life of the Durrell family in a humorous manner, and explores the fauna of the island. It is the first and most well-known of Durrell’s Corfu trilogy, which also includes Birds, Beasts, and Relatives and The Garden of the Gods.
