Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood by Alexandra Fuller (2001)
Fuller describes her African childhood in detail, from the death of her sibling to playing in the wild. Her British parents rather liked living in remote locations such as Zimbabwe and brought their daughters with them. At some points in the book, it is hard to believe that the story of Fuller’s very amazing upbringing is true.
