When you read the book in maturity — and it is a book to be read again and again, and then read to your children — you naturally find new things. Behind the robust family parties, the glorious swathes of wild landscape and the wild creatures who live in it and invade the family home, you find a book about fragility. Two different sorts of fragility, in fact.
Issue 44 (Winter)
The second is the fragility of the wild world. The fragility of the wild world is something we all live with these days.

Durrell was a great writer, but he would hate to be remembered as such. He was also a great conservationist, and his sense of mission drove everything he did. In his view, his writing was good insofar as it helped conservation: by spreading his ideas and by telling the world about the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
He often wrote in strong and campaigning terms about the state of the world and he did as much to spread the notion that wildlife conservation matters as any one who ever drew breath. But one of his greatest contributions to the conservation movement is My Family and Other Animals. It is not about conservation save by implication: what it does is to tell us — vividly and unforgettably and joyously — that the world and the people who live in it are infinitely richer for the wild places and the wild creatures we share it with. The wild world completes us, makes us whole, and brings us joy.
The wild world is — or should be — what truly completes the family circle. Many thanks for your kind words. Best wishes, Anna. Click here to cancel reply. Somehow the timeless and civilizing things we hope Slightly Foxed stands for seem more important than ever at a moment of change like this. But she got the last laugh, and plenty more jumpers, because the novel was eventually translated into twenty languages, sold 2 million copies and was made into a film starring David Niven and Deborah Kerr.

The Young Visiters was published in but written in , when its author was 9. It appeared with a Preface by J. Within two years it had sold , copies, given rise to a stage play, and caused a rumpus in literary London. It has never been out of print since. This is an exceptional record for a slight work. Why was The Young Visiters so popular and why does it endure? Every year the registrar of Public Lending Right issues a report on the authors whose books have been most often borrowed from libraries.
You can be sure these days that Danielle Steel, Josephine Cox and James Patterson will be up there with the leaders, but it might be more interesting, I think, to discover the name of the author whose books we borrow most often from each other.
