Review of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood
I read quite a bit of this. Unfortunately I didn't get to finish the entire thing, but what I read was truly quirky and great, from the alcoholic mother who rambles on about her dead children, to the author herself, growing up in Africa and suffering so-called "reverse" racism for being white, to the little details about flies (or something) burrowing through her sister's bottom as a baby... weird, eccentric, unusual and cool. I want to buy this.
