In addition to trying to round out some of our book collections (for me, Margaret Frazer's medieval mysteries and for Chris, the rest of the Thieve's World graphic novels), I also picked up a memoir that looked intriguing: Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood by Alexandra Fuller.
In Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, Alexandra Fuller remembers her African childhood with candor and sensitivity. Though it is a diary of an unruly life in an often inhospitable place, it is suffused with Fuller’s endearing ability to find laughter, even when there is little to celebrate. Fuller’s debut is unsentimental and unflinching but always captivating. In wry and sometimes hilarious prose, she stares down disaster and looks back with rage and love at the life of an extraordinary family in an extraordinary time.
That's it for today from me. Have a wonderful weekend!
