About the Author

About Hugh Gilmore Hugh Gilmore has been a teacher, an anthropologist who studied monkeys in Africa, a drama critic, novelist, newspaper columnist, and owner of an old and rare bookshop. His life, he says, has involved an exciting, but driving, quest for self-improvement that eventually led to peaceful self-acceptance. Much of his life is embedded in his themed memoir, My Three Suicides: A Success Story, released in 2015. He lives with his wife and son in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia and still operates his rare book business. He is the author of two novels, a story collection, several e-books, and now, this funny and wise memoir. He writes a weekly column about books and reading for The Chestnut Hill Local.

After "Malcolm's Wine", I was looking forward to "Last Night on the Gorilla Tour", and I wasn't disappointed. Very intriguing story, with characters that stay with you long after you finish the book. Realistic and often beautiful dialogue, that will alternately tug at your heartstrings, then set your teeth on edge. I thoroughly enjoyed the pace as well. The small town characters remind me of folks that Eudora Welty often chose to write about, except this time they have a lethal edge. Fine book!

I found this book to be an engaging read. It has been written well, it has some very nice twists and turns during its course; more than once I found the plot turned away from what I had been expecting in my own mind, which made it all the more enjoyable. A worthwhile use of my reading time and a pleasurable experience.

I'm a fan of Gilmore's fiction. I loved Malcolm's Wine and I've given several copies of Tales from a Bookshop as gifts. But Last Night is a different animal: the characters are so beautifully alive that I feel like they're with me even after I close the book. The dialog is particularly seductive: you can hear it as you read it.
All in all, a great deal of sophisticated fun.

I just love it when I find a book I cannot put down until I've finished reading it. This was so with "Last Night On the Gorilla Tour". Not what I had expected at all, knowing the author had studied primates in one of his previous incarnations, I expected a scientific and dry treatise on the Great Apes. To my surprise, I found an intriguing tale of love, lust and deceit. My interest was piqued right from the start with the development of the characters and the subsequent unravelling plot. I spent a pleasant weekend with these folks from a more genteel and simpler time only to find they share twenty-first century desires and motivations. I highly recommend this book as a study in character and time, and look forward to more from this talented author.

Good read...interesting characters and inner dialogues. Plot moves along at a nice pace. Not too fast. Not too slow. The story is interesting and unusual without being overly so. It is entirely plausable. Just a good, solid, and enjoyable read.
