Summary
From the bestselling author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight, a warm and candid memoir of grief, a deeply-felt tribute to her father, and a compulsively readable continuation of a brilliant series of books on her family. After her father's sudden death on holiday in Budapest, Alexandra Fuller realizes that if she is going to weather the loss, she will need to become the parts of him she misses most. Travel Light, Move Fast is the unforgettable story of 'Tim Fuller of No Fixed Abode,' a self-exiled black sheep who moved to Africa to fight in the Rhodesian War before settling as a banana farmer in Zambia. A man who preferred chaos to predictability, to revel in promise rather than wallow in regret, and was more afraid of becoming bored than of getting lost, he taught his daughters to live as if everything needed to happen altogether, all at once--or not at all. Now in the wake of his death, Fuller internalizes his lessons with clear eyes, and celebrates a man who swallowed life whole. In the days and months following her father's death she and her mother return to his farm with his ashes and contend with his overwhelming absence, recollecting her childhood spent running after him in southern and central Africa. Writing with 'reverent irreverence' of the rollicking grand misadventures of her mother and father, bursting with pandemonium and tragedy, Fuller takes to heart their insatiable appetite for life. Here is a story of joy, resilience, and vitality, from one of the finest memoirists of our time
