The "Crocodile by the Door" by Selina Guinness is a remarkable, compelling and moving memoir of a farm, a family and a home. When Selina Guinness and her partner Colin, both young academics, moved in with Selina's uncle Charles, an elderly bachelor, they had no idea what the coming years held for them: a crash course in farming, tense discussions with helicopter-borne property developers, human tragedy, and the challenge of dragging a quasi-feudal estate at the edge of Dublin into the twenty-first century. The "Crocodile by the Door" - a dazzling debut memoir that will appeal to fans of Edmund de Waal, William Fiennes and Richard Benson's "The Farm" - tells this remarkable story. Selina Guinness lives in the Dublin mountains with her husband, their children, and a lot of sheep. The "Crocodile by the Door" is her first book. "Something close to a small masterpiece...enchanting and hopeful". (Miranda Seymour, "Daily Telegraph" (five stars)).
