    When Alexandra Fuller was a little girl, her father told her, The problem with most people is that they want to be alive for as long as possible without having any idea whatsoever how to live Well, based on this memoir luminously written and so compelling I didn t want to come up for breath this author has truly lived There has been pain, yes, but also incandescent moments and advent

    4.5 Fuller s Don t Let s Go to the Dogs Tonight is an exceptional memoir of an African childhood Her parents were indomitable settlers, and the household felt jolly despite war, the loss of two children, alcoholism and mental illness This poignant sequel is a portrait of Fuller s two decade marriage, from its hopeful beginnings to its acrimonious end Charlie was a gallant one man inter

    I hate giving this book such a low rating because the writing is really good I really liked her first autobiography but this one just fell flat By the end of the book, I just did not care what happened to her She just comes across as very shallow and uncaring Maybe it was because of her upbringing but, like I said, I didn t care any.

    Ugh I ve not read Fuller s earlier memoirs because I m not especially interested in white colonists in southern Africa This I bought because I am interested in memoirs about the intricacies of marriage Unfortunately this one is also mostly about Fuller s family of white colonists in southern Africa While Fuller recognizes that her family is kind of problematic, she is also just SO enad of

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.Unlike most readers of this book, I suspect, I have not read Fuller s previous books, so this was my first exposure to her voice I loved it She is open, honest, not overly critical but also questioning She is near a divorce and looking back on her adult life and examining how she got there What was she looking for in marriage As an adul

    Evidently, Fuller covered the material of the disintegration of her marriage in an earlier book, one that did not cross my radar even though I ve been reading her for over 10 years I m glad I read this one without having read that one, since from the description, it is a much thinner volume,of a bloodletting than a true memoir This one incorporates memories from childhood, young womanhood, a
