    PDF pamyatnik.pro ï Monkey Grip Kindle ¼ monkey mobile, grip mobile, Monkey Grip PDF/EPUB29th book for 2020A semi fictionalised account of Garner's life as a single mother sharing houses and drugs in inner city Melbourne in the 1970s It's hard for me to give an objective review here; too much of my own twenties is mirrored in its pages My shared houses were filled with university students her's bohemian artists and con artists; our drugs were somewhat different but not too much and we occupied the same spaces—read the same books when to the same bars cafes parks even the same public swimming pool It was hard to read of her love affair with th

    PDF pamyatnik.pro ï Monkey Grip Kindle ¼ monkey mobile, grip mobile, Monkey Grip PDF/EPUBHaving just finished Monkey Grip I am feeling suitably provincial Garner's 1970's story is utterly urban and incredibly hipster it would break the hearts of modern loose fringed copycats People ride their bikes around from one inner city Melbourne share house to another swapping beds children and needles and rarely seem to go to work There is no internet You go to a bank to collect your dole money The writing is rich and sensual and the supporting characters are rain sun wind heat the feel of a dark backyard and that moment of falling in to bed exhausted and drunk Drugs are central to everyones' lives whether they use them or not Everyone hates the drugs the users and the fallout but no one will say so The rhythm of the book is uncertain and moves with freuent ebb and flow disaster and reuiem rather than the reuisite minor climax times two followed by prolonged pause then major c
