In ‘Horace’ it is only Aaron David who can get into the mind of a chimpanzee. Horace, of course, is a challenged chimp who hasn’t mastered the basics of his species i.e. climbing trees but prefers ‘teasing hair off coconuts and braiding it’ as a preferred pastime. But of course, as with a lot of his challenged characters he wins out in the end.
There is, however, bathos in some of his writing that I find quite endearing in both ‘Pete’ and ‘In the Woods’ we are given the contrast between the humorous and the inevitable of life’s lessons – reality will inevitably intervene – or in this case the imagination of the author.
‘Indoor Fireworks’ like some of his other characterisations is I suspect the serious side of Mr. David trying to get out in this ‘through the eyes of a child’ look at family life.
As would be expected – well worth a read.
You will love every tale but there is no way you will guess the end of any one of them.
Then, included in this great discount anthology, you will discover some of the best interviews you have ever read. You may not know the interviewer, you may not know the interviewee, but I will almost guarantee that by the end of each you will love and hate both, in equal measure.
