There are many things to look forward to this coming autumn (2017) and this is certainly one of them. Adam Freudenheim the publisher at Pushkin Press writes: “I love this book! It’s different. It’s special. It’s original! I fell in love with The Murderer’s Ape when I read it in a single day last summer; my 12-year-old son read it in a weekend and told me he didn’t want it to end – and he still can’t stop talking about it months later.”
The proof copy I have dipped into would certainly seem to bear that out and I shall look forward to updating this post nearer the time of publication.
