Description
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 book features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author's estate.
