    DescriptionIn "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.

    Review quote
    " This is not a book you read just once, but a tale of terrible beauty to get lost in over and over." -- "Newsweek" " By turns mischievous and openhearted, earthy and soaring . . . hair-raising, horrific, and thrilling." -- "The New Yorker " " Ms. Fuller gives us . . . the Africa she knew as a girl, a place of cruel politics, violent heat and startling beauty, a land she makes vivid in all its ' incongruous, lawless, joyful, violent, upside-down, illogical certainty.' " -- "The New York Times" " Vivid, insightful and sly . . . Bottom line: Out of Africa, brilliantly." -- "People"
