    So when I began listening to this, the second of Gerald Durrell s Corfu Trilogy,I was thinking this is supposed to be funny, but then I actually caught myself smiling By the end, when this family had thoroughly taken me in, I was laughing outright Here, in this book, the naturalist, conservationist and author writes of his youth in Corfu during the thirties
