Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An eccentric, quixotic and downright dangerous tale with full room for humor, love and more than a few highballs.” Huffington Post
“An artistic and emotional feat.” Boston Globe
“The reader is rewarded with an intimate family story played out against an extraordinary landscape, told with remarkable grace and style.” Minneapolis Star-Tirune
“The writer’s finesse at handling the element of time is brilliant, as she interweaves near-present day incidents with stories set in the past. Both are equally vivid…With Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness, Alexandra Fuller, master memoirist, brings her readers new pleasure.” Cleveland Plain-Dealer
