AOT #464: Alexandra Fuller Podcasts Leaving Before the Rains Come
Alexandra Fuller, author of the critically-acclaimed bestseller Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, discusses her new book Leaving Before the Rains Come. A child of the Rhodesian wars and daughter of two deeply complicated parents, Alexandra Fuller is no stranger to pain. But the disintegration of Fuller’s own marriage leaves her shattered. Looking to pick up the pieces of her life, she finally confronts the tough questions about her past, about the American man she married, and about the family she left behind in Africa. A breathtaking achievement, Leaving Before the Rains Come is a memoir of such grace and intelligence, filled with such wit and courage, that it could only have been written by Alexandra Fuller.
