Editorial Reviews

Kim Chinquee
“With sensibility and wit, Curtis Smith renders a world of charm and chaos. Smith is a writer of substance and talent, and Bad Monkey is a jungle of delight.” — Kim Chinquee, author of Oh Baby
John McNally
“Reading Curtis Smith’s prose is like listening to a brilliant electric guitar solo: you not only hear the music, you fall into it head-first until it alters the beat of your heart, the rhythm of your breathing. Do yourself a favor and put Bad Monkey on your must-read list.” — John McNally, author of Ghosts of Chicago and The Book of Ralph
Pinckney Benedict
“These stories brim with the energy of crime fiction and the ambition of high literature. Each piece in this collection achieves sublimity: that ineffable moment when the unanticipatable become the inevitable. Wonderful alone and, in concert, magnificent.” — Pinckney Benedict, author of Town Smokes: Stories and Dogs of God
