Summary

In this sequel to Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight, Alexandra Fuller returns to the story of her unforgettable family: the Happy Valley-era Africa of her mother's childhood, the boiled cabbage grimness of her father's English childhood; and the darker, civil war-torn Africa of her own childhood. We see Nicola and Tim Fuller in their honey-moon period, when east Africa lies before them with all its promise, even as the British Empire wanes. But in short order, an accumulation of mishaps and tragedies bump up against history until the couple finds themselves in a world they hardly recognize. Book jacket.
