I have read Alexandra Fuller’s book about her life growing up in Africa more than four times now. I simply love it.
Here’s a quote that stands out, about Fuller’s mother:
“She has twenty feet of copper wire hanging from the trees, attached to shortwave radio. She is reading, planting a garden, listening the radio, talking to her dogs, supervising lunch, and trying to write a letter all at the same time. She is gently manic, in a pottering sort of way.”
