9780986662706: Marvellous Hairy: -a novel in five fractals-

So hair is sprouting in unspeakable places and you can no longer carry a tune, but if you're a surrealistic artiste with an addiction to Freudian mythology and guilt-free sex, turning into a monkey has its upsides.

Nick Motbot may be evolving as a novelist, but his friends aren't too sure about his DNA. At least, not since Gargantuan Enterprises started experimenting with it. Once they figure out what's happening to him, they decide to set things right. Marvellous Hairy is a satirical novel about a group of friends sticking it to the man the only way they know how, with equal parts grain alcohol and applied Chaos Theory. Part literary fun-ride and part slapstick comedy, Marvellous Hairy is about the power of friendship and love, the evils of power, and the dangers of letting corrupt CEOs run our world. But most importantly, it's about how we have to get in touch with our fun-loving inner monkeys.

From the Inside Flap:

"Marvellous Hairy is a weird little beast, a blending of the anything-for-a-laugh mentality of Douglas Adams with the experimental abandon of early Philip K. Dick. Is it satire? Science fiction? A piercing exploration into the nature of being? Good-natured sex romp? Mark's publisher has labeled Marvellous Hairy< as being Fabulist Satire, which is as good a way as any to say that categorizing Mark is a near-hopeless task."    --Corey Redekop, Author of Shelf Monkey

"This an exaggeratedly simple way to put it, but Marvellous Hairy made me smile and think--and there isn't really much that'll make you do that, anywhere."    --Kyle Muntz, Author of Variations (On Phase)

"Try to imagine if Douglas Adams teamed up with Tom Sharpe to write The Island of Dr. Moreau as a modern comedy of corporate evil, and then Tim Burton filmed the result. Add monkeys. And sex. And more monkeys. Got it? No, actually you don't. Read this freaking book, people. Funny, absurd, captivating, and unique."   -- Douglas Smith, Author of Chimeriscope

About the Author:

Robot-monkey loving, zombie-pirate fighting, massively bestselling wannabe, Mark A. Rayner is actually Canadian. By day he is a university prof and by night, a writer of squibs, novels, and other drivel. (Some pure, and some quite tainted with meaning.) Marvellous Hairy is his second novel.
