An intimate, humorous, sensitive and ultimately humane portrait of a complex mother-daughter relationship reckoning with the travails of Alzheimer’s. Full of warmth and insight, I’m grateful to learn from Whouley how one might cope with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis and the support systems available to caregivers.

Alexandra Fuller gains a new understanding of the joys and sorrows of her mother’s crazy life in post-colonial Africa. We saw one side of it in Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, but the portrait is now filled out in a way that Nicola Fuller would appreciate. It is heart-warming and heart-breaking and an ultimate joy to read whether you are an old  fan of Don’t Let’s Go. . . or not. Alexandra’s gift for humor and honesty will draw you into her story, hold you there and stay with you.
