  1. From the second book:

    Mum says, “Don’t come creeping into our room at night.”

    They sleep with loaded guns beside them on the bedside rugs. She says, “Don’t startle us when we’re sleeping.”

    “Why not?”

    “We might shoot you.”

    “Oh.”

    “By mistake.”

    Did you and Mrs M sleep tooled up?

  2. I think Fuller would call herself an African, at heart at least. Do you, perhaps, mean black Africans? I’ve a signed copy of Gathering Seaweed, by Jack Mapanje, which is next up on the list to read. I read anything about African history and culture. Who it’s written by is often not so important.
