Travel Light, Move Fast Summary

Travel Light, Move Fast by Alexandra Fuller

When her father becomes gravely ill on holiday in Budapest, Alexandra Fuller rushes to join her mother at his bedside where they see out his last days together, and then carry his ashes home to their family farm in Zambia. As they make this journey and begin to grieve together, Fuller realises that if she is going to weather her father's loss, she will need to become the parts of him that she misses most. A master of time and memory, Fuller moves seamlessly between the days and months following her father's death, and her memories of a childhood spent running after him in southern and central Africa. And her own life begins to change. She faces seemingly irreparable family fallout, new love found and lost, and eventually further, unimaginable bereavement, holding fast to the lessons her father taught her about how to survive, whatever life throws at you. Writing with reverent irreverence of the rollicking misadventures of her mother and father, bursting with pandemonium and tragedy, here is a story of joy, resilience, and vitality, from a writer at the very height of her powers.

Travel Light, Move Fast Reviews

Travel Light, Move Fast ceaselessly surprises, delights and devastates in unequal measure. Poignant and utterly profound. I read it in a single sitting. -- Richard E. Grant
Her writing is all her own, graceful, full of dry humor, and charming. In her hands, a life becomes art. * The Millions *
Owning a great story doesn't guarantee being able to tell it well. That's the individual mystery of talent, a gift with which Alexandra Fuller is richly blessed * Entertainment Weekly *
[Fuller] sifted through a lifetime of memories in order to pen this celebration of the man whose profound influence helped shape her own worldview. [She]writes gracefully about embracing grief as an indelible part of the human experience. Another elegant memoir from a talented storyteller. * Kirkus Reviews *
Fuller writes with devastating humour and directness about desperate circumstances * Daily Telegraph *
Her prose is fierce, unsentimental, sometimes puzzled, and disconcertingly honest * Sunday Telegraph *
