Author Rick Ewing was an alcoholic living in the Bellevue Men’s Shelter when he wrote a brilliant novella during day trips to a nearby public library. Two years ago, this novella, Smoking Monkeys, was sent to Fogged Clarity. It blew us away. We are now pleased to offer the novella for purchase below. Only 150 copies of “Smoking Monkeys” exist.
The book was laid out and designed by Small Fires Press in New Orleans, and features a hand-designed, tri-fold, letter-pressed cover, hand-sewn binding, and Chaparral typefaces on Khadi handmade sheets.
