A British naturalist and his wife acquire a menagerie of animals and set up their own zoo in this delightful memoir by the author of the Corfu Trilogy.
But throughout my life I have rarely if ever achieved what I wanted by tackling it in a logical fashion.
The wild nature of the animals created quite a bit of chaos, but the Durrells’ problems really began when they attempted to return to Britain with their exotic new friends.
Told with wit and a zest for all things furry and feathered, Durrell’s A Zoo in My Luggage is a brilliant account of how a pioneer of wildlife preservation came to found a new type of zoo.
Any reasonable person smitten with an ambition of this sort would have secured the zoo first and obtained the animals afterwards.
Not only did they have to get them safely home, they also had to find somewhere able and—more importantly—willing to house them.
