Editorial Reviews

Review

'This real life story of the Durrell family is fascinating - Haag brilliantly traces their footsteps in pre-war Corfu, England and India' -Simon Nye, Writer, TV's The Durrells

'Family stories are worth telling, and this one is fascinatingly put together by Michael Haag. For few families present such an entertaining patchwork tale as the Durrells.' -Daily Mail

'Haag vividly evokes the time and the place with sumptuous descriptions ... [he] has written a love letter to an extraordinary family. As families and other animals go, the Durrells are a breed of their own.' - Daily Express

'Haag adds sadness and depth to a story that is superficially golden and charming, and which never stops being so. There is so much lustre here that nothing can tarnish it; the complications and grievances only make you admire the Durrells more. What a family, and what lives well lived' - Sunday Times --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Haag is also author of a dozen books, including <The Templars and The Quest for Mary Magdalene. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
