Matt Ruff is the author of The Mirage, Bad Monkeys, Set This House in Order, Fool on the Hill, and Sewer, Gas & Electric. He lives in Seattle/5(). Like the work of Nick Harkaway, another favorite of mine, every Matt Ruff book is unique—but Bad Monkeys is weird, even for Ruff.

There are times I will read a couple of reviews before purchasing a book, but in this case I didn't and I'm glad/5(3K). His latest book, Bad Monkey, is an offbeat murder mystery set in Key West.
