Alexandra Fuller on What's Your Why? with Emy diGrappa Alexandra Fuller wrote a searing memoir about her childhood in Rhodesia as the country struggled to win black majority rule in what is now Zimbabwe, “Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood.”

While she has not written anything overtly political, she says that everything we do is political from the decision we make to wake up in the morning to the clothes we put on our bodies, to the words we have the courage to speak.

Her new novel, “Quiet Until the Thaw”, follows the lives of two Oglala Sioux cousins who grow up to take very different paths.

“I write and I read, and I write and read my way into and out of ideas and life. And that’s what we do. That’s what storytellers do.” Alexandra Fuller
