WALT MAGUIRE is the author of a few plays, more newspaper and magazine articles, and a lot of that newfangled Web content. He’s on the editorial board of Philadelphia Stories Quarterly, which provides him with some experience in reading his work to coffee house crowds where it turns out the most enthusiastic person in the room doesn’t speak a word of English. He’s also acted, performing in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, where his biggest moment was playing dead while a dancer kept missing her mark and kicking him in the head steadily for five minutes. He has tripped over a surprisingly large number of obvious things. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, his daughter, and his inarticulate cat.
Walt Maguire, Monkey See
When Ed the Talking Monkey moves out of his cage at the lab and finds an apartment convenient to public transportation, he has to face not only the stares of confused humans but the snobbiness of the more advanced experiments that follow him into the new social scene. In the space of a few days, he must decide if his best interests lie with the humans, or with a group of the enhanced apes who think the humans are hogging all the best parking spaces at the malls. Meanwhile, he falls in love with a new young monkey at the lab, both of them unaware that one of the researchers has brought her in for an enhancement that is far beyond what any of them can imagine . . . or want. This hilarious novel sprawls across the social landscape, trips over the moral ottoman, bangs its knee on the political hutch, and knocks over some cultural knickknacks on its way to a gargantuan climax that reassembles the known world into a map of life in all its forms, from the ridiculous to the broken, from monkey to ape to human and back again, from the selfish to the sacrificing, from sea to shining, lonely, moonlit sea. It also offers a plethora of helpful, practical advice and how-to instructions on throwing inter-species dinner parties, parenting do’s and don’ts, conducting your own fiendish experiments, taunting caged monsters, and effective last words after the taunting turns out to be a mistake. trade paperback | ISBN 9780975254073 5.25" x 8.25" 170 pp.
RRP $13.75
 A charming and satirical examination of the question: What would happen if monkeys could talk and had their own 401(k)s? . . . A jarring and entertaining read. The Skwib
