About The Book
Monkeys in My Garden: Reflections from a Life in Isolation is a daily journal written by a woman hunkered down with her two pubescent sons in a farmhouse overrun by monkeys.What must it be like for this woman separated from her husband and locked down at her parental home, having to navigate through complicated family dynamics, trying to create a positive bubble of existence for herself and her children? In pointing out similarities between peopleâ€™s reactions to the present crisis and crises of the past, the writer shines a light on our collective human nature. She reflects on how populist leaders around the globe are mishandling the crisis in their respective nations. She reflects on dealing with social isolation and loneliness and ways of overcoming the destructive emotions they can stir.This book will give readers a sense of comradeship: to get a glimpse into a single personâ€™s experience will remind every reader that, even if theyâ€™re living alone, they are not alone; we are all in this together. We are all struggling with our own demons and also the demon lurking at the gate.
