"Sean Longley is a marvellous new talent. The Hartlepool Monkey had me gripped from beginning to end" Amanda Foreman, author of GEORGIANA, DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE "A sparkling debut...The possibilities for humour are obvious, but what impresses is the way the author has latched on to its serious potential. A beautifully told tale" Mail on Sunday "An imaginative first novel...comic and irreverent" The Times "This historical incident is rich material for a novel, and Longley attacks his subject with relish...Longley's period detail is spot-on, his style vivacious." Guardian "Full of period colour, racy incident and simian heroism, it's hard to see how a reader could fail to be thrilled" Independent on Sunday
