Trials Of The Monkey: An Accidental Memoir : Charles Darwin's great-great grandson Matthew Chapman leaves behind his stressful career as a Hollywood screenwriter and travels to Dayton, Tennessee where in 1925 creationist opposition to the teaching of evolution in schools was played out in a famous legal drama, the Scopes Trial. The purpose of this journey is to see if opinions have changed in the seventy-five intervening years. A defiant atheist, Chapman is confronted not only by the fundamentalist beliefs that continue to banish the theory of evolution but by his own spiritual malaise as the outward journey becomes an inward quest, a tragi-comic "accidental memoir".
