Francoise Fautrel’s latest novel, The Unwise Monkey, draws its reader by its dazzling wit, and its suppleness in arousing suspense and evoking sensibility. In this powerfully humble and humbling novel, consistently crossing the crumbling boundaries of autobiography and fiction, Francoise Fautrel generously re-imagines the shocking experiences of her young survivor heroine, Clara, without ever relegating her to a position of victim. Written with the hindsight of a street-smart child, this book is an open gesture to anyone who has felt broken yet directed by a drumming desire to create new conditions for a dignified life.
