A delightful autobiography from famed naturalist Gerald Durrell, My Family and Other Animals is many things: whimsical comedy, lovely family story, and loving ode to the flora and fauna of Corfu, which is where Durrell's family find themselves in the 1930s. We're joined by Wong Siew Lyn, Macaranga editor, to talk about the experience of reading this book, and the beauty of the writing. And then in Footnotes, we discuss the importance of reading books and writers in the context of their time.
