Great Apes by Will Self

In this provocative and darkly humorous novel, the protagonist, a celebrated London artist, wakes up one day to find himself in a world where chimpanzees have evolved to be the dominant species, with humans relegated to a subservient role. As he navigates this surreal and unsettling reality, he is forced to confront his own identity, the nature of consciousness, and the societal constructs that define our existence. Through a clever inversion of our world, the narrative explores themes of humanity, power, and the thin line separating humans from the animal kingdom, all while offering a satirical critique of modern society and its foibles.
