LEAVING BEFORE THE RAINS COME

by | Read by Alexandra Fuller

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Alexandra Fuller's beautifully accented voice, as rich and nuanced as her writing, makes her the perfect narrator for her intimate memoir detailing the dissolution of her marriage. Longing for stability, Fuller initially embraced her American husband's pragmatic outlook and settled existence as the ideal counterpoint to her unconventional African upbringing, which she wrote about in DON’T LET’S GO TO THE DOGS TONIGHT. Reminiscing about the excitement, if not outright terror, of a childhood lived on the edge of the jungle under the benign neglect of eccentric parents, Fuller reluctantly accepts that this very predictability is the primary reason the marriage ultimately failed. The loss and regret this brings come through clearly as does her early joy and optimism. Fuller's gifted performance lets listeners share this deeply personal journey through sadness to trust in a happier future. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2015]
