Îïèñàíèå: Fresh out of Veterinary College, and shoulder-deep in an uncooperative cow, James Herriots first job is not panning out exactly as expected ...To a Glaswegian like James, 1930s Yorkshire appears to offer an idyllic pocket of rural life in a rapidly changing world. But even life in the sleepy village of Darrowby has its challenges. On the one hand there are his new colleagues, Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, two brothers who attract a constant stream of local girls to whom James is strangely invisible. On the other he must contend with herds of semi-feral cattle, gruff farmers with incomprehensible accents and an overweight Pekingese called Tricki Woo...Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, If Only They Could Talk is a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic and beauty of Britains wild places. Bulls with sunstroke, pigs on the run and a cake-eating Peke with a betting habit ...I grew up reading James Herriots book and Im delighted that thirty years on they are still every bit as charming, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny as they were then - Kate Humble.
