    Description"Menagerie Manor" is sure to delight fans of Durrell's beloved classic "My Family and Other Animals" and other accounts of his lifelong fascination with members of the animal kingdom. With his unfailing charm, Durrell tells the story of how he finally fulfilled his childhood dream of founding his own private zoo, the Manor of Les Augres, on the English Channel island of Jersey. With the help of an enduring wife, a selfless staff, and a reluctant bank manager, the zoo grows, and readers are treated to a colorful parade of the zoo's unusual animal inhabitants.

    Review quote
    Animals come close to being Durrell's best friends. . . . He writes about them with style, verve, and humor. ("Time") [Hours] of delightful entertainment. ("Book Week") This book is a certain joy. ("New Statesman", London)
