Ideas are more difficult to kill than people, but they can be killed, in the end.
— p. 47, American Gods, by Neil Gaiman
Just starting to read American Gods, which she was drawn to because it seemed to be about hitchhiking. A kind of On the Road, with a twist of horror.
Finished Ape House a few minutes ago. Good job, Sara Gruen! The book succeeded in making self very curious about bonobos. She wonders if San Francisco Zoo has any?
A quick Google search revealed that:
- Bonobos is the name of a men’s clothing chain based in San Francisco.
- Bonobos is the name of a rock group.
- They are endangered, they are found in only one country in the world: the Congo (Why only that one country?) According to the Bonobo Conservation Initiative, “they inhabit the heart of the Congo basin, the second largest rainforest on earth.”
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
