"Gerald Durrell is of universal interest, not only as a writer about wildlife, but as a man dedicated to the saving of species likely to die out. As a result of his pioneering zoo in Jersey he is everyone's ideal of a crusading conservationist. My Family and Other Animals has joined the classics. Each new generation of readers has grown up with Gerald and his adventures. David Hughes was a friend of Gerald Durrell for forty years, convivially when editing his books in the 1950s, intimately when they were neighbours in southern France during the 1970s, closely when Gerald Durrell was dying in London hospitals during his last months. This is a unique, touching and very personal account of the life of Gerald Durrell - a larger than life character, writer and pioneer conservationist."
