OUT NOW: Monkey Around by Jadie Jang!
3rd August 2021
We’re absolutely thrilled to say that Monkey Around by Jadie Jang is out now!
This absolute riot of an urban fantasy is Jang’s debut novel, and has already been selected as one of Buzzfeed’s ’35 Amazing Fantasy Books Coming Out This Summer’ and one of Apple Books’ most anticipated books for the Summer.
San Francisco has a Monkey King — and she’s freaking out.
Barista, activist, and were-monkey Maya McQueen was well on her way to figuring herself out. Well, part of the way. 25% of the way. If you squint.
But now the Bay Area is being shaken up. Occupy Wall Street has come home to roost; and on the supernatural side there’s disappearances, shapeshifter murders, and the city’s spirit trying to find its guardian.
Maya doesn’t have a lot of time before chaos turns up at her door, and she needs to solve all of her problems. Well, most of them. The urgent ones, anyhow.
But who says the solutions have to be neat? Because Monkey is always out for mischief.
“Jang has put a wonderful amount of thought into a brisk, action-packed story.” — Sia, Blogger – Every Book a Doorway
“Engaging characters, intriguing creatures, and thrilling action scenes.” — BuzzFeed
“As nimble and spirited as its were-monkey protagonist, Monkey Around is a wild romp through evocatively portrayed post-financial collapse San Francisco.” –Molly Tanzer, author of Vermilion and Creatures of Will and Temper
