The Corfu Trilogy by Gerald Durrell Summary

The trilogy that inspired ITV's six part television series The Durrells. Three classic tales of childhood on an island paradise - My Family and Other Animals, Birds, Beasts and Relatives and The Garden of the Gods by Gerald Durrell - are available in a single edition for the first time in The Corfu Trilogy. Just before the Second World War the Durrell family decamped to the glorious, sun-soaked island of Corfu where the youngest of the four children, ten-year-old Gerald, discovered his passion for animals: toads and tortoises, bats and butterflies, scorpions and octopuses. Through glorious silver-green olive groves and across brilliant-white beaches Gerry pursued his obsession . . . causing hilarity and mayhem in his ever-tolerant family. Durrell's memories of those enchanted days gave rise to these three classic tales, loved by generations of adults and children alike, which are now available in one volume for the first time. 'He has an uncanny knack of discovering human as well as animal eccentrics' Sunday Telegraph 'A delightful book full of simple, well-known things: cicadas in the olive groves, lamp fishing at night, the complexities of fish and animals - but, above all, childhood moulded by these things' New York Times

My Family and Other Animals by Samar Dana Summary

When the unconventional Durrell family can no longer endure the damp, gray English climate, they do what any sensible family would do: sell their house and relocate to the sunny Greek isle of Corfu. My Family and Other Animals was intended to embrace the natural history of the island but ended up as a delightful account of Durrell’s family’s experiences, from the many eccentric hangers-on to the ceaseless procession of puppies, toads, scorpions, geckoes, ladybugs, glowworms, octopuses, bats, and butterflies into their home. Amazon.com Review As a self-described "champion of small uglies," English writer Gerald Durrell (1925-1995) devoted his life to writing and the preservation of wildlife, from the Mauritius pink pigeon to the Rodriques fruit bat. My Family and Other Animals was intended to embrace the natural history of the Greek island of Corfu, but ended up as a delightful account of his family's experiences that were, according to him, "rather like living in one of the more flamboyant and slapstick comic operas." As a 10-year-old boy, Gerry left England for Corfu with "all those items that I thought necessary to relieve the tedium of a long journey: four books on natural history, a butterfly net, a dog, and a jam-jar full of caterpillars all in imminent danger of turning into chrysalids." Durrell's descriptions of his family and its many eccentric hangers-on (he stresses that "all the anecdotes about the island and the islanders are absolutely true") are highly entertaining, as is the procession of toads, scorpions, geckos, ladybugs, glowworms, octopuses, the puppies Widdle and Puke, and the Magenpies. This is a lovely book. About the Author Gerald Durrell was born in Jamshedpur, India, in 1925. A student of zoology, he founded the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust on the Channel Island of Jersey. His other books include A Zoo in My Luggage and The Whispering Land (both available from Penguin).

L'accro du shopping à Hollywood by Sophie KINSELLA Summary

Hollywood ! La ville des stars ! Le paradis du shopping ! Pour l'irrésistible Becky, c'est la consécration, un vrai rêve. Mais aveuglée par les sunlights, notre accro du shopping pourrait bien se brûler les ailes... Depuis qu'elle s'est installée à Los Angeles avec Luke et Minnie, Becky croit vivre un conte de fées. La Cité des Anges ! Hollywood ! A elle les premières glamour, le shopping sur Rodeo Drive, le job de rêve d'habilleuse de star ! En vérité, Becky s'ennuie un peu. Luke est trop occupé à gérer la carrière de la superstar Sage Seymour, elle n'a été invitée à aucune soirée et pas évident de se faire de nouveaux amis quand on ne connaît que les employées du spa. Heureusement, tout cela va changer : Suze arrive, avec mari et enfants ! A elles la belle vie, Hollywood, les voici ! Sauf qu'au pays des stars, les apparences sont souvent trompeuses et notre incorrigible accro va vite comprendre à ses dépends que derrière les paillettes règne un monde sans pitié. Aveuglée par les sunlights, désireuse de se faire une place dans la A-list, Becky pourrait bien se brûler les ailes, et mettre en danger ce qu'elle a de plus cher : son couple, sa famille, son amitié avec Suze... A Hollywood plus qu'ailleurs, il n'y a pas de place pour les sentiments.
