Publisher Description

Minot’s bestselling debut: A moving novel of familial love and endurance in the face of shattering tragedy 

Monkeys is the remarkable story of a decade in the life of the Vincents, a colorful Irish Catholic family from the Boston suburbs. On the surface, they seem happy with their vivacious mother Rosie at the helm. But underneath, the Vincents struggle to maintain the appearance of wealth and stability while dealing with the effects of their father’s alcoholism.

When a sudden accident strikes, their love for one another is tested like never before. Written by the bestselling author of Evening, Monkeys is a powerful story of one family’s struggle to overcome life-changing tribulations and Minot’s wrenching ode to the ties that bind even the most wounded of families.

“Minot chronicles the mundane and miraculous moments that characterize family life…Few novels have so powerfully displayed the collective unity—and joy—of family life.”

— Chicago Tribune 


  • "Minot’s funny, wry and profoundly moving novel of a large and gawky family in Massachusetts is full of quiet surprises.”

    — San Francisco Chronicle
  • “Minot has a fine eye for detail and a talent for creating tension through half-revealed clues in dialogue.”

    — Library Journal
