Review of Kramberger with Monkey by Rick Harsch

A rollicking satirical, experimental novel about assassination, serialized in the online publication The Collidescope, 

featuring taboo-trouncing, grimly ravenous characters, a melange of lyrical and journalistic styles. Superbly literary, lasciviously hilarious, Rabelaisian, and a gravitas-inducing addition to Rick Harsch’s vastly underappreciated body of work. Read all of his novels.

Voice and wit unmatched in recent ‘American’ fiction, solid research in service of belligerent political lampoons, endearing and terrifying characters, a surprise or twenty on every page – these are what I have come to expect from this author.
