Alexandra Fuller's 2002 debut memoir Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight described her experiences growing up in civil war-plagued Rhodesia during the seventies. Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness places that picture in fuller perspective by presenting the story through the lives of Fuller's parents, her father Edward and, most especially, her Scottish mother Nicola. Told with sensitivity and an intimate sense of the family's epic struggles, this memoir captures the fury of Africa's revolutions more vividly than a dozen films.
