Canadian author Colin McAdam shares his novel A Beautiful Truth. Setting his story in both a primate research facility in Florida and the home of a Vermont couple who adopted a chimpanzee in the 1970s and alternating perspectives between the humans and the primates, McAdam “delivers a thought-provoking foray into the not-so-dissimilar minds of our ape relatives,” according to Publishers Weekly. McAdam is also the author of Fall and Some Great Thing.
