Granta 37 ePub and PDF Available
The full title of this volume is "The Family:they Fuck You Up" but fo some reason the good folks at Goodreads couldn't bring themselves to commit that to writing.This volume includes contributions by Sappho Durrell (daughter of the brilliant writer Lawrence Durrell and Eve Cohen), Mikal Gilmore (younger brother to the infamous Gary Gilmore who coined the phrase "Just Do It" while facing a firing squad in Utah (or was that Nike?), Geoffrey wolff (the lesser known but older brother of Tobias Wolff and author of the BRILLANT memoir "The Duke of Deception" about his some time father - his younger brother Tobias wrote his better known tale of his upbringing with his mother in "This Boy's Life" but I digress...

Sappho Durrell is not exactly a household name but if you know anyting aobut the name Durrell it's problably that her father is the author of "The Alexandria Quartet" comprised of Justine, Balthazar, Clea, Mountolive & Clea" and that her uncle Gerald is the autodidact naturalist who wrote some beautiful books about his idyllic and slightly crazy upbringing on the island of Corfu before WWII ("My Family And Other Animals", "Birds Beasts and Other Relatives")and in later life became a world renowned zoologist and contributed a multitude of great books on his collecting safaris in Africa.Durrell established one of the best known breeding zoos for endangered animals located on the Isle of Jersey off the coast of France.

The piece in Granta by Sappho Durrell includes bits form her ournals and exchanges with her manipulative, manaical father - she maintains that he raped her aas a child and naturally she was forever damaged from this incident which he never acknowledged as far as I know. Durrell's biographer admits that he was an impetuous, womanizer all his life discredits the rape accusation.Sappho portrays him as a manipulative beast of a father who essentially used her as a model for the characters in his novels (Sappho's mother Eve Cohen was widely thought to be the the mysterious jew Justine in the first book of the quartet) which if you haven't read it, I highly recommend that you do - it's less expensive than opium and just as effective.
