Ape House: A Novel

Sampul Depan
Spiegel & Grau, 2011 - 316 halaman

The wildly entertaining new novel from the bestselling author of Water for Elephants.

Isabel Duncan, a scientist at the Great Ape Language Lab, doesn't understand people, but apes she gets--especially the bonobos Sam, Bonzi, Lola, Mbongo, Jelani, and Makena, who are capable of reason and communication through American Sign Language. Isabel feels more comfortable in their world than she's ever felt among humans--until she meets John Thigpen, a very married reporter writing a human interest feature. But when an explosion rocks the lab, John's piece turns into the story of a lifetime--and Isabel must connect with her own kind to save her family of apes from a new form of human exploitation.

Tentang pengarang (2011)

Sara Gruen is the author of the #1 bestselling novel Water for Elephants, soon to be a major motion picture starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, as well as the bestseller Riding Lessons and Flying Changes. She shares her North Carolina home with her own version of a blended family: a husband, three children, four cats, two dogs, two horses, and a goat. In order to write her latest novel, Ape House, Gruen studied linguistics and a system of lexigrams so that she could communicate directly with the bonobos living at the Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa. She now considers them to be part of her extended family, and, according to the bonobos, the feeling is mutual.
