As stated in the New York Times Review of Books, "In what presents itself as a modest, mischievous little novel, Francine Prose has, modestly and mischievously, given us a great work. Expertly constructed, Mister Monkey is so fresh and new it's almost giddy, almost impudent with originality. Tender and artful, Prose's 15th novel is a sophisticated satire, a gently spiritual celebration of life, a dark and thoroughly grim depiction of despair, a screwball comedy, a screwball tragedy." We will spend part of our time each hour in small groups and part of our time in the whole group as we explore this book in new and creative ways. (The cost of this program is $10.)
