K. lives on an island in the South Pacific. Natives worship him, girls are sacrificed to him, legends surround him. A pleasurable life indeed! Until a new kind of creature is left as sacrifice - and those who came with her want her back. They want K. too, all forty feet of him, with his claws and fangs and butterfly wings. If K. could speak, or even think, he might be up for the adventure. As it is, all he can do is react...and protest...and resist."Monster, 1959" is a startling, nuanced view of our world that illuminates a distinct time in American pop culture and raises disturbing questions about who the real monsters are.
