Bad Monkeys (P.S.)by Matt Ruff
Bad Monkeys twists, turns, shifts, and shakes its way through the story of Jane Charlotte, a woman who claims to be a member of a clandestine organization dedicated to fighting evil known as the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons. A gripping, witty, and hilariously bizarre story about lies, betrayal, and a secret world.
"Ruff throws the reader some astounding curveballs, often necessitating the need to re-read and re-re-read some passages to make tentative sense of what's going on. In this way, Bad Monkeys pleasingly resembles cinematic brain corkscrews such as Memento and The Usual Suspects."
Synopses & Reviews
Jane Charlotte has been arrested for murder.
She says she's a member of a secret organization devoted to fighting evil. She says she's working with the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons — aka "Bad Monkeys."
Her confession lands her in the jail's psychiatric wing and earns her countless hours of poking, probing, and questioning by a professional. But is Jane crazy or lying?
Or is she playing a whole different game altogether?
Jane Charlotte claims to be a member of a secret organization--the Bad Monkeys--devoted to ridding the world of especially evil people. As Jane's tale grows increasingly bizarre, a psychiatrist tries to sort truth from lies. Is she lying or crazy, or is her tale unbelievably true?
