    Alexandra Fuller won worldwide attention, popular acclaim, and critical accolades for her memoir of her childhood in Africa, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight. This engaging follow-up explores Fuller’s parents’ childhoods and charts the trajectories of their lives through all the British couple’s experiences in war-torn Africa. With the same sharply etched narrative that has earned the author such immense praise, Fuller expands on and offers new insights into her family’s remarkable trials and successes.

    Janet Tarasovic says: "Great by both ear and eye"
    "Extraordinary family living African history A+'"

    Story
    Where does Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. I tell people it is a bit eccentric at times and was a great listen. The narrator reminds me the actress, Kristin Scott Thomas. The narration opened up the story in a very grand way.


    What other book might you compare Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness to and why?

    Gone with the wind


    Which character – as performed by Bianca Amato – was your favorite?

    The mother, main character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was more fun enjoying it slowly.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't be scared off by the African war element. It was really lovely overall and I recommend it.
