My Family and Other Animals (The Corfu Trilogy Book 1)

From the publisher: "The inspiration for The Durrells in Corfu, a Masterpiece production on public television: A naturalist’s account of his childhood on the exotic Greek island. When the Durrells could no longer endure the gray English climate, they did what any sensible family would do: sold their house and relocated to the sun-soaked island of Corfu. As they settled into their new home, hilarious mishaps ensued as a ten-year-old Gerald Durrell pursued his interest in natural history and explored the island’s fauna. Uproarious tales of the island’s animals and Durrell’s fond reflections on his family bring this delightful memoir to life. Capturing the joyous chaos of growing up in an unconventional household, My Family and Other Animals will transport you to a place you won’t want to leave."

The inspiration behind hit family drama The Durrells in Corfu on PBS. Holli Petersen picked this memoir as one of the books she loved on episode 181 of WSIRN, describing it as if Steve Irwin wrote like Jane Austen with the observations of David Sedaris. It's the book that started their Shelf Sisters book club and made them cry with laughter.
