Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood - Alexandra Fuller

Mum says, "Don´t come creeping into our room at night."

They sleep with loaded guns beside them on the bedside rugs. She says, "Don´t startle us when we´re sleeping."

"Why not?"

"We might shoot you."

"Oh."

"By mistake."

"Okay". As it is, there seems a good enough chance of getting shot on purpose. "Okay, I won´t."

 

After having read the first couple of pages yesterday, I decided to finish up Three Souls before digging into this book porperly. But now I feel more inclined to read Alexandra Fullers memoir, so I might reconcider.
