This is not a book you read just once, but a tale of terrible beauty to get lost in over and over.”—Newsweek

By turns mischievous and openhearted, earthy and soaring...hair-raising, horrific and thrilling.”—The New Yorker

 

Join us for a powerful and intimate exploration of war, family, love and death with acclaimed author Alexandra Fuller, who has documented her childhood in Rhodesia during a time of intense struggle for independence. Her debut book, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood, which is featured on President Nikias’s 2013 summer reading list, was a New York Times Notable Book, a finalist for the Guardian’s First Book Award and winner of a Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize. “War was like an episode of awful, non-stop weather to us,” Fuller has said. Her four non-fiction books, at once anti-war stories and love stories, are rooted in the belief that “everything we do is political, from the decision we make to wake up in the morning, to the clothes we put on our bodies, to the words we have the courage to speak.” Fuller’s other books include Scribbling the Cat: Travels with an African Soldier, winner of the Lettre Ulysses Award for the Art of Reportage; The Legend of Colton H. Bryant; and Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness.
