An Evening With Alexandra Fuller

Alexandra Fuller has written five books of non-fiction, including her widely praised and award-winning debut, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood. Fuller has also written extensively for magazines and newspapers including the New Yorker Magazine, National Geographic Magazine, Vogue and Granta Magazine. Her reviews have appeared in the New York Times Book Review; The Financial Times and the Toronto Globe and Mail. In her latest memoir, Leaving Before the Rains Come (Penguin Press; ($26.95), Fuller confronts the tough questions about her past, about the American man she married, and about the family she left behind in Africa. The Washington Post writes, “Fuller unravels her feelings in an exquisite meditation on what it means to be alone — on the courage it can inspire, as well as the sometimes undeniable sense of sorrow.”
