The book is a surreal story about mental patients who escape their
hospital. They are led by a "Private detective", his "assistant" and
They are in search of "the big monster monkey" the color of the monkey
They search jungles and battle savages and other enemies. However, all
of this really just happens around the hospital grounds, but they
think what they are undergoing is real. "Perception is reality" etc.
This is a humorous book, and the humor is as weird as the characters.
It is a story of quest. And chasing that quest in circles.
the monster monkey is the size of a gorilla. The PI is 50ish, silver
hair, and getting pudgy. The assistant is doughy, wide-eyed, red hair,
and the secretary is tall, black hair, and beautiful.
You don't need to profile each character, or any of them. I just add
that for your own edification.
I have one idea for the cover in mind, but would rather see what you
can come up with. The designers usually do much better than me.
