Inhaltsangabe: General FictionLarge Print EditionHoeg is an adventurous and intelligent writer whose future course seems happily, impossible to predict . . . one of the essential contemporary novelists. starred, Kirkus ReviewsNo imaginative writer today is more daring than Danish novelist Peter Hoeg. starred, Booklist* A Literary Guild Main SelectionAn hour after nightfall the ape rose, wrapped an arm around Madelene, parted the screen of leaves at a shadowed spot, and leaped, almost horizontally, into what seemed to Madelene to be a pitch-black void. Madelene Burden is a Danish beauty who lives in an alcoholic haze while her husband, Adam, a behavioral scientist, dreams of restoring the London Zoo to its original glory. Hes about to get his chance with Erasmus, a 300-pound gorilla unlike any other. But a spark ignites between Madelene and Erasmus and begins a love affair as emotionally and erotically charged as any male-female relationship can be and a revelation that stuns the world.
Review: Peter Høeg, author of the international bestseller Smilla's Sense of Snow, has written a fable that explores our human status as inhabitants of paradise lost, and the trade-off between civilization and freedom. The story begins with a captured ape, dubbed Erasmus, a specimen of an apparently new species with a cognitive ability that seems to rival human capacities. Erasmus is rescued from scientific study and experimentation by Madelene, whose husband, Adam, is the zoo director. Escaping to an Eden-like nature reserve, Madelene finds an empathy with Erasmus that develops into a wild sexual liberation. When the pair emerge from Eden to try to stop Adam continuing researches on others of Erasmus' kind, paradise dissolves, and civilization wins out. Read an interview with Peter Høeg.
