Leaving Before the Rains Come, Hardback

Leaving Before the Rains Come Hardback


"I believed that if I moored myself to Charlie, I would know tranquility interspersed with organized adventure.

He would stay in Zambia because he loved the romance of it.

I could remain here, safely. Our lives would be the 'three rifles, supplies for a month and Mozart' of Out of Africa without the plane crashes, syphilis and Danish accent." In 1992 Alexandra Fuller embarked on a new journey, into a long, tempestuous marriage to Charlie Ross, the love of her life.

In this frank, personal memoir, a sequel to Don't Let's Go To The Dogs Tonight, she charts their twenty years together, from the brutal beauty of the Zambezi to the mountains of Wyoming - the new adventures, the unexplored paths, the insurmountable obstacles ...and the many signals that they missed along the way.
