Bruno Littlemore, the narrator/main character of this book, is a creationist's nightmare. Bruno, you see, is a chimpanzee who has far transcended rudimentary sign language exchanges. In fact, this robust primate not only speaks English; he frequently articulates deep thoughts on art and philosophy. His mastery of speech is only the beginning; at a research lab at the University of Chicago, he falls in love with human Dr. Lydia Littlemore, who somewhat later returns the favor. A fellow novelist called this evolutionary tale "an enormous, glorious rattlebag of a book."
