Description
"What kind of Navy officer sits on his ship in the middle of the Mediterranean dreaming of gerbils?" That's the question Holly Robinson sets out to answer in this warm and rollicking memoir of life with her father, the world's first gerbil czar. Starting in the 1960s with a few pairs of gerbils housed for curiosity's sake in the family's garage, Donald Robinson's obsession with the "pocket kangaroo" developed into a lifelong passion and second career. From part-time model for her father's bestselling pet book, How to Raise and Train Pet Gerbils, to full-time employee in the gerbil empire, Holly was an enthusiastic if often exasperated companion on her father's quest to breed the perfect gerbil.

"Wacky and tender, The Gerbil Farmer's Daughter is as much a social history of the '60s as an intensely personal family memoir. Holly Robinson handles the heavy issues of longing and belonging with wonderful honesty and a light touch."—Stewart O'Nan
