Quiet until the thaw by Alexandra Fuller( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From bestselling memoirist Alexandra Fuller, a debut novel. Lakota Oglala Sioux Nation, South Dakota. Two Native American cousins, Rick Overlooking Horse and You Choose Watson, though bound by blood and by land, find themselves at odds as they grapple with the implications of their shared heritage. When escalating anger towards the injustices, historical and current, inflicted upon the Lakota people by the federal government leads to tribal divisions and infighting, the cousins go in separate directions: Rick chooses the path of peace; You Choose, violence. Years pass, and as You Choose serves time in prison, Rick finds himself raising twin baby boys, orphaned at birth, in his meadow. As the twins mature from infants to young men, Rick immerses the boys within their ancestry, telling wonderful and terrible tales of how the whole world came to be, and affirming their place in the universe as the result of all who have come before and will come behind. But when You Choose returns to the reservation after three decades behind bars, his anger manifests, forever disrupting the lives of Rick and the boys. A complex tale that spans generations and geography, Quiet Until the Thaw conjures with the implications of an oppressed history, how we are bound not just to immediate family but to all who have come before and will come after us, and, most of all, to the notion that everything was always, and is always, connected. As Fuller writes, "The belief that we can be done with our past is a myth. The past is nudging at us constantly.""--

Cocktail hour under the tree of forgetfulness by Alexandra Fuller( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness tells the story of the author's mother, Nicola Fuller. Nicola Fuller and her husband were a glamorous and optimistic couple and East Africa lay before them with the promise of all its perfect light, even as the British Empire in which they both believed waned. They had everything, including two golden children - a girl and a boy. However, life became increasingly difficult and they moved to Rhodesia to work as farm managers. The previous farm manager had committed suicide. His ghost appeared at the foot of their bed and seemed to be trying to warn them of something. Shortly after this, one of their golden children died. Africa was no longer the playground of Nicola's childhood. They returned to England where the author was born before they returned to Rhodesia and to the civil war. The last part of the book sees the Fullers in their old age on a banana and fish farm in the Zambezi Valley. They had built their ramshackle dining room under the Tree of Forgetfulness. In local custom, this tree is the meeting place for villagers determined to resolve disputes. It is in the spirit of this Forgetfulness that Nicola finally forgot - but did not forgive - all her enemies including her daughter and the Apostle, a squatter who has taken up in her bananas with his seven wives and forty-nine children. Funny, tragic, terrifying, exotic and utterly unself-conscious, this is a story of survival and madness, love and war, passion and compassion

Die beeindruckende Geschichte einer mutigen Frau, die mit ihrer Familie in Afrika das Glück sucht Nach "Unter afrikanischer Sonne" kehrt Alexandra Fuller in das Afrika ihrer Kindheit zurück und erzählt die ebenso bewegte wie bewegende Geschichte ihrer Eltern. Nicola und Tim Fuller wandern anfang der Siebzigerjahre nach Afrika aus, verheissungsvoll liegt der Kontinent vor ihnen. Doch schon nach kurzer Zeit ereignen sich Unfälle und Tragödien innerhalb der Familie, politische Unruhen und Bürgerkriege erschüttern den Kontinent. Im Zentrum von Alexandra Fullers neuem Buch steht ihre Mutter, die es auf unnachahmliche Weise immer wieder schafft, den Widrigkeiten des Lebens mit Mut und Entschlossenheit zu begegnen, um dann, die Uzi unter den Arm geklemmt, zur nächsten Kostümparty zu fahren. Eine ganz besondere Hommage an eine ganz besondere Frau - und an ein Afrika, das unter die Haut geht. Alexandra Fuller wurde 1969 in England geboren. Als sie zwei Jahre alt war, wanderte ihre Familie nach Rhodesien, dem heutigen Simbabwe, aus. Auf der Flucht vor den Bürgerkriegsunruhen verschlug es die Fullers 1981 zunächst nach Malawi, dann nach Sambia. 1994 verliess Alexandra Fuller Afrika, um in Kanada und Schottland zu studieren. Heute lebt sie mit ihrer Familie in Wyoming, USA.

Dort lernt sie K kennen, einen weißen Farmer, der als Soldat im rhodesischen Bürgerkrieg kämpfte. Alexandra ist fasziniert von Ks Geschichte, sie will wissen, wie die dramatischen Ereignisse ihn geprägt haben, und bittet ihn, mit ihr zu den Kriegsschauplätzen zu fahren. So begeben sich beide auf eine Reise von Sambia über Simbabwe (dem ehemaligen Rhodesien) bis nach Mosambik. Eine Reise, während der sich Alexandra Fullers Liebe zu Afrika mit all seinen Schrecken und in all seiner Schönheit einmal mehr beweist. Ausgezeichnet mit dem Lettre Ulysses Award 2005
