Zelma beautifully captures the unrest caused by unanswered questions as a man in the autumn of his life desperately seeks closure on his son's death.
As in life, his probings seem only to lead to more questions and I enjoyed the fact that there are no easy answers or quick fixes in this book. It's all about the journey, which is well-paced and unexpected.
A poignant read set against a fiery Australian landscape rarely captured in literature. I would definitely recommend this.
Laugh-out-loud funny, surreal, odd and unpredictable from the first word, The Demon Chimp of Prague is a fast-paced explosion of ideas. It reminded me of something Robert Rankin might write, which is high praise indeed.
A highly recommended giggle-fest. I just wish it were a little longer.
