Travel Light, Move Fast by Alexandra Fuller
It is both a love-letter to her larger-than-life parents and a love-letter to Zimbabwe, and not the vanished colonial world but modern Zimbabwe as well. It sounds like an idyllic life with wild birds and frogs, and beautiful countryside, but, of course, it's extremely dangerous now. But when Alexandra's father suddenly dies in Budapest, she realises even more deeply what her parents and her homeland mean to her.
I found that this book moved fast, like its title, and tended to flit between tragedy and comedy. However, life can be like that, and, perhaps, it increased the poignancy of the situation. I'd love to read more of Alexandra Fuller's books.
I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
