Paul, alias Gibbon, is a young man who looks like a monkey - his arms are so long ! His life is made of sorrow and of unluckiness. Being an orphan, he is taken in by a psychiatrist who teaches him life’s basics as well as he can. Without any qualifications, Gibbon becomes a removal man, finds balance, and then love. But his mental instability - or his weirdness - makes him sink once again into a world of trafficking and dishonesty. This story resembles an infernal spiral into the abyss of madness.
Is it sad ? No, for the author serves us an insanely funny desperation.

« A real delight, with a touch of erudition, of humor, relying on the single clever device of the unforeseen, the unexpected. Here is a gift far from ordinary. »
