Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

Ackerley wrote few books, but among them some of the most distinctive prose (three memoirs and one novel, We Think the World of You) of the 20th century. I'd start with My Dog Tulip, a great non-fiction book about the connection between people and animals.
