Anthony GrahamThe ape-man comes of age in this darkly comic novel. Our hero is rescued from the depths of a remote jungle where he has lived with a troop of gorillas and is taken to London by a film company where he is confronted with modern society.
He wonders at modern human customs and is often confused and frightened by the state of civilisation, while fashionable society in turn finds the hero a mystery.
He has loved and lost and the novel explores his quandary and answers the question as to whether he will love again.
Monkey Man is peopled with a cast of extraordinary characters including a billionaire mogul, his wild daughter, film makers, musicians and academics. Combined with a savage satire of 21st Century society and the sympathetic portrait of a young man, this novel is both biting and moving.
While at first blush Monkey Man may appear to be a simple parody, there is an underlying insight into the ferocity of today’s society, especially when compared with the orderly but also brutal community of the gorilla troop.
