Gerald Durrells' Corfu

"Here in Corfu"  said Theodore, his eyes twinkling with pride

"anything can happen"

.

Corfu was the setting for Gerald Durrell's trilogy:

"My Family and Other Animals",

 "Birds Beasts and Relatives"

& "The Garden of The Gods"

.

“My childhood in Cortu shaped my life. If I had the craft of Merlin, I would give every child the gift of my childhood.”

"Gradually the magic of the island settled over us as gently and clingingly as pollen. Each day had a tranquillity, a timelessness, about it so that you wished it would never end. But then the dark skin of night would peel off and there would be a fresh day waiting for us, glossy and colourful as a child's transfer and with the same tinge of unreality.".

"Presently we chugged our way round a headland that looked as if it had been constructed out of immense bricks of red, gold and white rock, with a huge umbrella pine perched on top of it, clinging precariously to the edge and leaning dangerously seaward."
