Rogue woolly monkeys

Books written by people who have raised apes in their homes! (Link courtesy of Brent.)

I also note that Me Cheeta: My Life in Hollywood has made the Booker longlist - hmmm, I feel an Amazon splurge coming on... - pity so many of them haven't been published in the US yet. Some years ago I was very full of the notion that I'd like to do a frenetic Booker longlist August blog bit, but really I would only do it if someone would send me the books for free! But perhaps I will read the few of them that are actually alluring and convenient to get hold of...

  1. The only ones I've read are Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall, which is amazing, and Sarah Waters's The Little Stranger, which I enjoyed but which was far from brilliant. I'll admit that Me, Cheetah is pretty intriguing.

    Who said Cheetas never prosper?
