Don’t Let’s Go To the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood by Alexandra Fuller

Ms. Fuller’s memoir of growing up in white Rhodesia during the civil war which lasted from 1971 to 1979, helps the reader to understand the difficult transition of power in Africa. This, however is not a dry political treatise but a very personal and moving account. One incident in particular (which I will not give away) is almost too sad to bear.  I recommended this to one of my client’s book club and received their effusive thanks.                              I would also recommend Ms. Fuller’s “The Legend of Colton H. Bryant” the largely true story of an oil rig worker in Wyoming where the author now resides. Nowhere as good as “Don’t Let’s Go…” but still worth your time.
