Under the tree of oblivion - a life in Africa
In this book, Alexandra Fuller comes back to the Africa of her childhood and tells the moving story of her parents.
Nicola and Tim Fuller emigrate to Africa at the beginning of the 1970s, the promises of the continent in reach. But after a short time, accidents and tragedies within the family, political unrest and civil wars undermine the continent.
At the Centre of the book we get to know Alexandra Fuller's mother, who always creates an inimitable way to face the adversities of life with courage and determination, before driving to the next costume party, the Uzi under her arm. A very special tribute to a very special woman - and to an Africa that goes under the skin.
