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

Don't Let The Dogs Go Tonight by Alexandra Fuller book cover

In Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, Alexandra Fuller remembers her childhood on farms in the 1970’s and 1980’s in Rhodesia, Zambia and Malawi. 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.

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.

Copies of the books are available at the library.
