The Picnic and Suchlike Pandemonium *pre-loved*
If you loved My Family and Other Animals and can't get enough of the Durrells after the Corfu series, The Picnic and Suchlike Pandemonium is the book for you.
It constitutes a series of anecdotal snippets and short stories including 'The Picnic', a laugh-out-loud account of an ill-fated Durrell family excursion, which should have been a relaxing, jolly affair. But with the Durrells things are seldom straightforward and on this occasion, all that could go wrong did go wrong - except Gerald Durrell's sense of humour in recounting the tale. Other hilarious and surreal Roald Dahlesque stories ensue, including the critically acclaimed Gothic horror story 'The Entrance'.
This is a pre-loved paperback of The Picnic and Suchlike Pandemonium, by Gerald Durrell. The book was first published in 1979 and this is a 1986 edition. The book is in very good condition, with minor wear and fading to the cover and spine.
