"most boring book I've ever read."
Alexandra Fuller (Scribbling the Cat and Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight) and first-time author Wendy Kann (Casting with a Fragile Thread) discuss growing up in colonial Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. They tell many amusing and thoughtful anecdotes and reflect on their childhoods, revisiting a changed Africa as adults, the ties they have to the families and community that raised them in Africa, and the transition to living in the U.S.
