Interviews with an Ape by Felice Fallon
This is a book about vulnerable animals and the humans who interact with them. And it's about us. Our pasts and our present, and the way we see the world.
It's about the triumph of hope, our infinite capacities to endure and to love - and how we survive through the tales we tell. Most of all it's a story of homecoming told through a gorilla called Einstein who comes to us with a remarkable secret. He can communicate with humans through sign language.
Interviews With An Ape is a work of imaginative daring, written with a direct simplicity yet deep insight. A novel of beginnings and endings, destruction and restoration, its many voices will linger long in the memory and in the heart.
