Yellow Monkey, by Steven Dhondt

His is a rage that can erupt into madness.

In the heady realm of Drew Hollander’s high-rolling Wall Street colleagues, most either threaten or cringe. Drew, however, does both. Despite his success in the cutthroat realm of global finance, he’s suffocated by it. A secret passion burns within him — to abandon his high-profile career and pursue poetry. His obsession leads him to Kristine Preston, a seductive poet-in-residence at Columbia University, and their entwined destinies take an unexpected and unforgiving turn.

Award-winning author Steven Dhondt, known for London Bridge and When God Laughs, weaves a tale of ambition, passion, self-doubt, and longing in a fast-paced, riveting novel. Drew’s life is a battleground, with his own obsessive-compulsive disorder threatening to shatter all he holds dear. With empathetic prose, Dhondt guides readers to a gripping climax, where a modern-day Circe transforms a willing poet into a tormented soul beyond imagination.
