MoreSet in Zimbabwe in the middle of the 20th Century, this collection of stories details the adventures of family life, in a country where the lives of the people and the wild animals were closely intertwined. Told with humour and insight, the stories focus on unusual experiences that frequently involve the rearing of strange creatures within a household. From an owl to a warthog, a jackal to a crocodile, it offers an intimate view of a somewhat eccentric way of life in Africa, which has largely disappeared.
