Neela Vaswani, "The Pelvis Series"

Eve develops a friendship with Lola, the super-smart chimp she’s studying.

(from The O. Henry Prize Stories 2006)

Fascinating story about learning and language arranged in pleasant mini-chapters. Made me wonder how much of this was true about the way these chimps can communicate. Are they really this logical and coherent? Or was this sci-fi? Very cool either way.

(I read this on the Explorer of the Seas)
