Here's what people are saying about Monkey Puzzle:
"Reading Monkey Puzzle is the literary journal equivalent to listening to Jim Morrison scream 'COME ON!' before the guitar solo in 'Five To One" . . . or driving to Woody Creek Tavern for the first time and spending the entire afternoon getting loaded while sitting in Hunter Thompson's old chair."
- Rob Geisen, author of Paper Thin
"Reading Monkey Puzzle is like plunging into dark waters needleworked with piranhas, and coming away raw and stripped and blowing and laughing. Reading Monkey Puzzle is like discovering a honeyed mystery deep at the heart of your most cherished bloodied escapade."
- Shane Joaquín Jiménez, author of It Can Be That Way Still
"Monkey Puzzle gives light to the resurgence of poetic inspiration and ingenuity."
- Olatundji Akpo-Sani, Baobob Tree Press
