About this title:

Synopsis: Critics applaud this unflinching memoir of a child growing up during the 1970s Rhodesian Civil War. Keenly and evocatively written, it is the remarkable story of a family clinging to a harsh landscape and the dying tenets of colonialism. The daughter of hardworking, yet strikingly unconventional, English-bred immigrants, white Alexandra arrives in black Africa at the tender age of two. Shaped by the uncompromising surroundings, she learns to move through life with a hardy resilience. As Rhodesia slowly becomes Zimbabwe, Alexandra survives harrowing family tragedies, including the deaths of siblings, and outbursts of bloody revolution. Sometimes humorous, sometimes painful, always emotional, this idiosyncratic story is propelled by the sheer, raw humanity it describes.

From the Back Cover: “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
