|Durrell contracted malaria on one of his early trips, and spent his convalescence writing further books to raise funds for future trips. He produced this title, The Drunken Forest, and perhaps his most enduring book My Family and Other Animals during this period. Here we have the second 1956 printing of the first of these.
