Out, Out: A Novel of Women and Apes with Kim MacQueen (Burlington)

Event date: 
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 - 6:30pm

Join us in welcoming local author Kim MacQueen to Phoenix Books Burlington!

About the Book: Deb Solomon is a new mom suffering a spate of postpartum depression, a listless marriage and a career in free-fall. So she jumps at the chance to go to work in another world: a university laboratory housing language-competent apes and the humans who study and care for them, led by brilliant primatologist Soraya Baldwin-Ruhl. But Soraya’s star is already falling, even as the people at the lab act more apelike even as the apes start to seem more human. Deb’s own life soon spirals into a science soap opera as she follows Soraya further and further into near-madness.

"MacQueen keeps the tension building as Deb falls deeper and deeper under the spell of the driven, perplexing Soraya, who perilously walks a fine line between studying the apes and becoming a central part of their world. With compelling characters and a suspenseful plot, MacQueen puts both apes and humans under the microscope." --Kathryn Livingston for IndieReader
