Alexandra Fuller: Memories of an African Childhood

This episode is an edited recording of writer ALEXANDRA FULLER at the 2012 Sun Valley Writers’ Conference. Fuller, whose two best-selling, award-winning memoirs about her parents and her childhood in southern Africa, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight and Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness, indelibly evoking a landscape of love, loss, longing and reconciliation, discusses both what she has found in the process of writing those books, and what she has lost.
