What is rather less well known is that Margo also turned her hand to writing. Apparently written sometime in the s, her autobiographical book, Whatever Happened to Margodescribes her adventures as a Bournemouth landlady in Margo also includes a good splash of Gerald-style Durrell family antics, particularly mentioning Gerald several times.
It does seem that she intended her memoir for publication.
The Durrell menage had fled Bournemouth in the thirties to bask in the magic of a Greek island… the appealing account by my brother Gerald in My Family and Other Animals will surely entice any reader to do likewise.
It presumably was not meant to languish unseen in an attic for decades. Or perhaps this manuscript is a first draft that never got any further. The problem is that the end result is just not engaging. The dense and frequently disorganized prose is hard to wade through, and I found myself skipping over several pages.
