Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners will feel as if they're having an intimate chat with acclaimed memoirist Alexandra Fuller (DON'T LET'S GO TO THE DOGS TONIGHT) as she contemplates the life of her boisterous, adventurous father, Tim, whose motto was "travel light, move fast." Fuller is a gifted storyteller with a talent for re-creating her family's life in Africa and Europe. Her unflinching portrayals of family members, especially her inattentive and brusque mother, will elicit sympathy from listeners. Fuller smoothly modulates the tone and pitch of her soft, lilting voice to evoke the spirit and attitude of every person she includes in her accounts. While humorous moments come through, it is Fuller's reflections on grief and her ability to love her family despite their excesses and thoughtlessness that resonate.
