Wright Farms - Adult Fiction
This novel told from the perspectives of both humans and chimpanzees "packs a huge emotional punch" (The Gazette, Montreal). Looee is a chimp raised by a well-meaning and compassionate human couple who cannot conceive a baby of their own. He is forever set apart-not human, but certainly not like other chimps. Then one night, after years at the family's Vermont home, all their lives are changed forever. At the Girdish Institute, a group of chimpanzees has been studied for decades. There is proof that chimps have memories and solve problems, that they can learn language and need friends. They are political and altruistic. They get angry, and forgive. Mr. Ghoul has been there from the beginning, and has grown up in a world of rivals, sex, and unpredictable loss. Looee and Mr. Ghoul travel distant but parallel paths through childhood, adolescence, and early middle age.
