DESCRIPTION

How you see a country depends on whether you are driving through it, or live in it. How you see a country depends on whether or not you can leave it, if you have to.As the daughter of white settlers in war-torn 1970s Rhodesia, Alexandra Fuller remembers a time when a schoolgirl was as likely to carry a shotgun as a satchel. This is her story - of a civil war, of a quixotic battle with nature and loss, and of a family's unbreakable bond with the continent that came to define, scar and heal them.Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award in 2002, Alexandra Fuller's classic memoir of an African childhood is suffused with laughter and warmth even amid disaster. Unsentimental and unflinching, but always enchanting, it is the story of an extraordinary family in an extraordinary time.

Fuller's debut is unsentimental and unflinching but always captivating. In wry and sometimes hilarious ... Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize in 2002, was a 2002 "Notable Book" of The New York Times and a finalist for The Guardian 's First Book Award.
