Is it a plane? Is it a bird? No, it’s a novel; but unlike any you’ve ever read before.
Pamela and Elizabeth are two ladies of a certain age who cruise the world and whose letters home become an internet phenomenon. Then a huge national newspaper column and a hit TV series. But their comments are set against a backdrop of extraordinary global events. It’s a comedy and a tragedy. It’s a documentary and a fantasy. It’s a romance and a thriller. It’s science fiction and absolute fact. It blurs the line between reality and imagination. And you cannot put it down.
Pamela and Elizabeth become an internet phenomenon when the blogs and letters from their travels are read by millions. Their ramblings are expanded to a weekly feature in Britain’s biggest selling newspaper The Sketch On Sunday and then a highly rated and well received BBC TV series. Meanwhile the most extraordinary events are unfolding in the real world. Packed with comedy and tragedy, humour and tears, romance and satire – Beware The Monkey Man has to be one of the most unusual novels of many years.
This is the first novel by Rex Kenny.
300 pages, hard cover, with a centre sections of pictures and photographs.
“This could well become the most read novel of the summer”.
