Come join the discussion!  Our selection for July is Don't Lets Go to the Dogs Tonight, by Alexandra Fuller. Set in Rhodeisa in the 1970's, Fuller recounts 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.
