Alexandra Fuller "Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood"
Alexandra Fuller was the daughter of white settlers in 1970s war-torn Rhodesia. DON'T LET'S GO TO THE DOGS TONIGHT is a memoir of that time, when a schoolgirl was as likely to carry a shotgun as a satchel. Fuller tells a story of civil war; of a quixotic battle against nature and loss; and of her family's unbreakable bond with a continent which came to define, shape, scar and heal them. In wry and sometimes hilarious prose, she looks back with rage and love at an extraordinary family and an extraordinary time.
