You'd have to be a monkey not to enjoy this
Wonderfully understated, shrewd and funny. Essentially a collection of vignettes of an American academics' study of baboons in Kenya. The study itself is overshadowed by the tales of his relations with Masai, adventuers with hardcore Somali truck drivers, reflections on the maniacal Diane Fossey of Gorillas in the Mist fame and some thoughtful considseration on issues scientific and political to boot.

Charming. Read it.

Out in paperback April '02
