Francisco Goldman: Monkey Boy

In conversation with Susan Choi
Francisco Goldman

Monkey Boy, Francisco Goldman’s first novel since the widely acclaimed, national bestselling Say Her Name, tells the story of the author’s own upbringing, exploring his divided identity (Jewish/Catholic, white/brown, native/expat) and quest to heal his damaged past and find love.

“Francisco Goldman ... Francisco Goldberg? ... Frankie Gee!—who else can do all this?” writes Susan Choi. “He is uncategorizable, as is this book, which made me grow a second heart just to contain all its fierce tenderness. That rarest of writers, the kind we cannot live without.”
