Drawing on a large body of historical and scientific evidence, this fascinating book sets out a new interpretation of quasi-artistic behavior in monkeys, showing that there may be a fine line between it and 'true' art. "[Lenain] cannot help let slip an infectious fascination with our primate cousins ... [he] succeeds in making his book unputdownable"--"The London Magazine"Hide synopsis
