British naturalist Gerald Durrell, author of the Corfu Trilogy, shares more humorous reflections on a life spent among humans and animals.
In My Family and Other Animals and its sequels, Gerald Durrell writes of his family's antics during their time on the Greek island of Corfu. In his later memoirs, he vividly describes his expeditions to other, faraway places.

In Fillets of Plaice, he compiles a quintet of hilarious stories that touch on all of the above and more—from his unconventional childhood to his passion for animal conservation as an adult. His adventures range from a rollicking birthday party to a London pet shop to the exotic locale of deepest Africa. Throughout it all, Durrell entertains with his signature charming, witty voice.

A compendium of outrageous tales, Fillets of Plaice is perfect for longtime fans of Durrell's work, and anyone looking for a heartwarming, riotous read.

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