520    It's after midnight. Two gorillas are descending the side 
       of a New York high-rise. Can that be? But this is only the
       beginning of Stephen Dobyns's dazzling new novel. Part 
       quest (in pattern), part comic book (in tone), and chiefly
       an exploration of a young man's search for his missing 
       fiancee, it deals with such matters as heroes, good and 
       evil, wrestling, kidnapping, and subplots from the 
       Brothers Grimm - all as regarded by an omniscient "camera 
       eye". Come see Michael Marmaduke as he progresses from 
       confused innocence to darker self-knowledge; meet Rose 
       White and her sister Violet, along with Deep Rat, cops 
       Brodsky and Gapski, and Primus Muldoon, manipulator of men,
       who calls on Nietzsche to draw aside the veil of illusion 
       we hide behind. Stephen Dobyns has invented a compelling 
       world where fun and puns mingle with daring make-believe, 
       and larger-than-life characters play out the crucial human
       questions: How do we live? How do we handle our demons?
