These days, the writer Alexandra Fuller lives in a yurt in Jackson Hole. It’s a far cry from where she grew up: under the cloud of civil war in what was once called Rhodesia in southern Africa. Fuller has chronicled her life in a series of acclaimed memoirs, writing fearlessly about war, family, and the collapse of her decades-long marriage. Her newest book is a novel about two Native American cousins on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. She joins us to talk about her life, her work, and how they overlap. (Rebroadcast)
Alexandra Fuller is the author of five books of non-fiction, including the memoirs Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight and Leaving Before the Rains Come. Her new book is called Quiet Until the Thaw [Independent booksellers|Amazon|Audible].
