MONKEY TEMPLE, by Peter Gelfan

Monkey Temple is a coming-of-old-age adventure about two longtime best friends and rivals who, determined to “not go gentle into that good night,” set off on a final road trip.  Their efforts to face past failures and give meaning to their dwindling futures change their lives forever but not at all as they had envisioned.  It’s a buddy story with strong female characters and plenty of dark humor.

"Peter Gelfan’s Monkey Temple is a rollicking journey down a winding road to a dubious paradise. I took a lot of pleasure in it. So familiar, the riffs and issues and experiences and characters—talkin’ ’bout my generation—and I reveled in so many of the choices the author made in rendering them. Rich in insight and humor, it is, in the end, a story about stories themselves." — Tony Cohan, bestselling author of On Mexican Time
