I'd never heard of Gerald Durrell but it doesn't matter this collection of fictional stories based on his youth is very entertaining. He reads the stories himself and is an excellent narrator, a voice from another time and place, like the Corfu he writes about. There's humor, wacky situations and colorful people set in the Greek islands during the 1930s. I suppose this is a gateway to reading more by Durrell who appears to have been a prolific writer. ( )
