really liked it
bookshelves: africa

I always love memoirs of Southern Africa -- and these three sisters were a little older than me but many of the places the author talks about are familiar (the Victoria Falls hotel in Livingston, the Monomatapa hotel in Salisbury, Mazabuka, Harare, etc.). I was left with a drifting feeling after I finished this book -- which was perhaps the point. A white African coming to terms with the Rhodesian war and moving away from Africa to other post-colonial places, such as New York and Hong Kong. Was surprised at how little of this story took place outside -- definitely not my experience of Africa.
