Alexandra Fuller talks about the African past that will never let her go. Master of the eccentrically funny, heart-breaking and unflinching memoir, Fuller’s first book, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, the account of her African childhood in 70’s Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia was published to huge acclaim and many prizes.
Leaving Before the Rains Come is a frank and personal sequel in which Fuller charts with honesty, humour, and sadness her twenty-year marriage to Charlie Ross, the love of her life. From the brutal beauty of the Zambezi to the mountains of Wyoming – the new adventures, the unexplored paths, the insurmountable obstacles, and the many signals that they missed along the way.
This is sure to be a memorable and enlightening evening.
