<p><b>With an introduction by author Anne Enright.</b><br /><br /><b>Shortlisted for the <i>Guardian</i> First Book award, a story of civil war and a family's unbreakable bond.<br /><br /></b><i>How you see a country depends on whether you are driving through it, or live in it. How you see a country depends on whether or not you can leave it, if you have to.</i><br /><br />As the daughter of white settlers in war-torn 1970s Rhodesia, Alexandra Fuller remembers a time when a schoolgirl was as likely to carry a shotgun as a satchel. This is her story - of a civil war, of a quixotic battle with nature and loss, and of a family's unbreakable bond with the continent that came to define, scar and heal them.<br /><br />Shortlisted for the <i>Guardian </i>First Book Award, Alexandra Fuller's classic memoir of an African childhood is suffused with laughter and warmth even amid disaster. Unsentimental and unflinching, but always enchanting, <i>Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight</i> is the story of an extraordinary family in an extraordinary time.</p>
