Carleton Eastlake’s MONKEY BUSINESS Included In BookTrib’s Summer Reading List!

When TV writer William Fox is dragged by his show’s toxic producers to a “gentleman’s club,” he meets Nicole, a mysterious dancer who claims to be an anthropologist searching for signs of rational life on Earth.

Enchanted by her playful and serious ideas, Will falls in love—and his ever more troubled love-struck behavior and the acidly destructive battles during the production of his show begin to illustrate Nicole’s theories.

Nothing about Nicole seems authentic. After she warns she’ll soon leave and his producers are humbled by an uncanny encounter with the police, Will begins to wonder, is Nicole staging real world events with him and the producers as her experimental subjects? And if so, can learn the lessons she’s trying to teach, and earn her love? Purchase at
