'Utterly Monkey' is a funny, energetic, uplifting novel about where we're from and where we'd like to get to.

Blackwell North Amer
Danny Williams is a young lawyer. He didn't mean to be a lawyer, but somehow he is - and for up to eighteen hours a day. He's well-paid, home-owning and 27, but also over-worked, lonely and frequently stoned. The plan was to leave the troubles of a small town in Northern Ireland for the big city in England, but it turns out Londoners have troubles of their own. His colleague Albert spends too much time deciding which ergonomic mouse to use; his boss appears not to be human; and though the trainee on the ninth floor is beautiful, Danny works on the tenth.
Then one evening an old school friend pitches up into his shiny new life. On the run from a Loyalist militia, Geordie brings everything that Danny had thought he'd left behind and dumps it on his doorstep.
Taking place over an intense five-day period - set in London and the fictional town of Ballyglass - the novel looks at who and what we really owe loyalty to: our lovers, our friends, our country, ourselves? And what happens to your soul in an office? And why do jellybeans cost so much in posh hotels?
