In 1972, when Alexandra Fuller was two years old, her parents finally abandoned their English life and returned to what was then Southern Rhodesia and to the beginning of a civil war. By the time she was eight, the war was in full swing. Her parents veered from being determined farmers to being blind drunk, whilst Alexandra and her sister, the only survivors of five children, alternately take up target practice and sing Rod Stewart numbers from sunbleached rocks. This memoir is about living through a civil war; it is about losing children and losing that war, and realizing that the side you have been fighting for may well be the wrong one.
Alexandra Fuller was born in Derbyshire, England in 1969. She moved with her family to Africa in 1972, living on several farms in Rhodesia, Malawi and Zambia. In 1994, Fuller moved to Wyoming where she lives with her husband and two children. This is her first book.
