The drunken forest by Gerald Durrell( Book )

82 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerald Durrell is among the best-selling authors in English. His adventurous spirit and his spontaneous gift for narrative and anecdote stand out in his accounts of expeditions in Africa and South America in search of rare animals. He divines the characters of these creatures with the same clear, humorous and unsentimental eyes with which he regards those chance human acquaintances whose conversation in remote places he often reproduces in all its devastating and garbled originality. To have maintained, for over fifteen years, such unfailing standards of entertainment can only be described as a triumph. The Argentine pampas and the little-known Chaco territory of Paraguay provide the setting for The Drunken Forest. With Durrell for interpreter, an orange armadillo or a horned toad, or a crab-eating raccoon suddenly discovers the ability not merely to set you laughing but also to endear itself to you

The picnic and other inimitable stories by Gerald Durrell( Book )

24 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and Hungarian and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uproarious antics and surreal situations take center stage in six tales from the celebrated British naturalist and author of the Corfu Trilogy. The eccentric Durrell family sets off on an ill-fated excursion in "The Picnic" and embarks on a Greek cruise in "The Maiden Voyage." Next, things take a turn for the diabolical when a solo Durrell runs into a former flame in "The Public School Education"--And then finds trouble of a different sort in "The Havoc of Havelock." Finally, the typically jocular Durrell unexpectedly shifts to the macabre with the surprise cuisine of "The Michelin Man" and the spine-tingling horror of "The Entrance." With his knack for describing his often outlandish, always entertaining adventures, Gerald Durrell serves up an engrossing blend of genres in this intriguing collection of stories. Including both fiction and nonfiction, The Picnic and Suchlike Pandemonium reveals the wide-ranging talents of the famed naturalist and memoirist. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author's estate
