Today on Books+ we have a bookshelf full of memories - the good and the not so good. Mandy Sayer tells us about her life as a tap-dancing busker in New York, and her difficult marriage to African-American poet Yusef Komunyakaa. But we also have a cat that’s killed in the trenches of world war one, elephants dying during the conflict in Mozambique, and a tortoise killed at the height of the Cold War.
