Summary
Alexandra Fuller braids a multilayered narrative around the perfectly-lit, 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. A story of survival and madness, love and war, loyalty and forgiveness, this intimate exploration of Fuller's family - at its heart, the story of her mother, Nicola - is as funny, terrifying, exotic, and unselfconscious as Nicola herself
