Monkey Tales for the Dead by John Henry Morel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The quest for knowledge precedes man by many ages of development of the species. Not the less, the species of man in development. Man cannot count without counting out loud in his head, except he can use a calculator to do sums of inconceivable proportions and limit. Man is not less than the sum of his parts, the least of which is his heritage as gorilla, monkey or chimpanzee. Too often we assume that because we look and smell like monkeys, that we are monkeys in different skin. Too bad we assume and too often we presume. This book is a series of short stories or rhymes written by bestselling author, John Henry Morel. It is a mix of magic, skill and absolute poetry. It is also an apocalyptic essay on the fall of man that either already has happened or is going to happen in the distant future. We have no idea the context or the meaning that the author is suggesting but we know that there is an undercurrent of meaning beyond the rational or conscious and verging on the sublime or subliminal or divine. Too many times we begin to read a book assuming that it is either fiction, or a mediocre work that will entertain us until we find the next book to entertain us until we find the next book to entertain us. In so many words, entertaining or not, we seek entertainment. In this book, we seek meaning without motion, wisdom without longing and suffering without words. We try to sum up life in so many words and in sum, life is like a box of chocolates that have all run out. They keep you warm in the middle of the night but once you are out, you are out, and after the chocolate has run its course, we are left with an emptiness or lack of purpose, meaning and provision to guide us through the better part of our life. Read this work and begin to laugh. Read this work and begin to life. Read this work and begin to light. Read this work and begin to sigh. This work is worth a life of work. This work is worth a life of waiting. This is the supreme master's work of art just waiting. Published by Rodaian Press, Laguna Beach, California.
