My Ishmael is a sequel to the novel Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. Its plot revolves around a gorilla named Ishmael who describes his philosophy regarding tribal society to Julie, a twelve-year-old girl.
The book reflects the author's evolving philosophy by clarifying concepts in the previous novel which the protagonist supposedly misunderstood. It resolves the problem of Ishmael dying at the end of the earlier work by explaining that this was all part of an elaborate plot to allow the gorilla to finally return to Africa, where he can live the natural life that he has taught to his disciples.
