The Story of a Father, a Memoir Book Talk & Signing
Alexandra Fuller is the bestselling author of several memoirs, including Leaving Before the Rains Come, Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness, and Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight. She will discuss and sign Travel Light, Move Fast ($27.00 Penguin Press), the utterly original story of her father, Tim Fuller, and a deeply felt tribute to a life well lived.
After her father’s sudden death, Fuller realizes that if she is going to weather his loss, she will need to become the parts of him she misses most. A master of time and memory, she moves seamlessly between the days and months following her father’s death, as she and her mother return to his farm with his ashes and contend with his overwhelming absence, and her childhood spent running after him in southern and central Africa. Writing with reverent irreverence of the rollicking grand misadventures of her mother and father, bursting with pandemonium and tragedy, Fuller takes their insatiable appetite for life to heart. Here, in Fuller’s Africa, is a story of joy, resilience, and vitality, from one of our finest writers.
