Marrying off Mother and Other Stories is a wonderful collection of stories (some true, some not so true...) full of eccentric characters and absurd situations. Gerald talks about when he helped his mother try and find a new husband; and the acquisition of a strongly perfumed pig named Esmerelda...
Beasts in my Belfry showcases Gerald's sharp eye for observing humour in any situation and has him explaining how from the age of 2, the only thing he ever wanted to do was study animals. It then goes on to become a charming account of his first job in 1945 as a student keeper at Whipsnade Zoo. He talks about the awesome animals he used to keep company - including a lion who was a dab hand at ventriloquism and a brown bear he used to enjoy singing duets with.
Rosy is My Relative was Gerald's first novel and it focuses on a 30-year-old man who receives an unexpected inheritance - #500 and an elephant called Rosy who has a thirst for liquor... Gerald decided there's only one thing to do - he's going to give the elephant to the circus.
