on to your hats. BAD MONKEYS by Matt Ruff is an occasionally funny,
often baffling and always entertaining romp that will have you
questioning everything you know to be true. Faintly reminiscent of
some of Philip K. Dick’s earlier work from a topical if not
stylistic standpoint, it provides the answers to those questions
that come to you unbidden when you wake from a sound sleep in the
middle of the night and start thinking just a bit more than might
be mentally healthy for you.
BAD MONKEYS is primarily a narration that takes place in the Las
Vegas County Jail between a prisoner named Jane Charlotte and
county psychiatrist Dr. Richard Vale.
