Author Biography

It is very obvious to me that, given the immense danger of global warming, and the multitude of dangerous technologies looming on the human horizon, that we need a more inclusive, participatory form of government. To do this I looked back in time, not forward, to detect the flaws in our social evolution from interdependent yet individualistic hunter-gatherers to complacent suburbanites. I believe I have solved the problem of the design of an upgraded democracy, but now the next obstacle is how to achieve it. Along the way, because politics is such a repugnant topic to the average citizen, I have looked for ways to both entertain and educate simultaneously.

Hurry Huchimp Be Bonobo Like: The New Democracy by C.J. Cronin is an interesting take on social issues and climate change. The reader is introduced to Kahoom, the Tahitian with the great smile who “just loves all women,” anchoring his sailing craft off the island of Lord Howe, where a science conference is taking place. Here, he will make his brilliant proposal for a new form of democracy and how to implement it. His idea of a new democracy could be the answer to the global warming and climate crisis that threatens our climate. But while he is working on it and installing the new democracy in New Zealand, there are growing rumors that he and the US President might be dead and a looming threat of war.

C.J. Cronin’s novel is the work of pure genius and readers will love how he offers a brilliant idea of democracy without coming off as preachy or lecturing, weaving his ideas masterfully into a gripping plot line. Hurry Huchimp Be Bonobo Like: The New Democracy is a fascinating story that features powerful characters and readers will love Kahoom and Leah and the bond that grows quickly between the two. The writing is exquisitely good, somewhat lyrical, with awesome descriptions of the settings. The witticism is biting and readers will be absorbed by the author’s jovial, humorous voice. I enjoyed the social commentaries and the many words of wisdom that come across in the writing. One of my best expressions was: “The more free press you have, the more democratic you are.” The plot is well-conceived and masterfully executed and the themes are knitted beautifully into it. C.J. Cronin’s work is both entertaining and thought-provoking, a story that is utterly original and educative.
