Product description


As the grant-supported, knowledgeable survivor of the most refined scientific experiments, Doctor Rat, Ph.D., dedicates himself to defending mankind against the worldwide rebellions, uprisings, and insurgencies of his fellow animals.

From the Publisher

Marlowe is privileged to reintroduce William Kotzwinkle!

About the author...FROM RICHARD BAUSCH: "I think William Kotzwinkle is our Boccaccio--there isn't anyone funnier, smarter, or more inventive."

FROM KURT VONNEGUT: "Kotzwinkle is one of the few American writers in complete control of his material."

About Dr. Rat, FROM NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS: "A clout from the pen of a modern zen master of the literary world."

FROM THE NEW SCIENTIST: "A Comic Triumph...Doctor Rat is thoroughly anthropomorphic, very funny, and not lacking in the bite of truth essential to good satire."

FROM THE LONDOM TIMES: "Doctor Rat is Weird and Wonderful...A fantastic and ferocious Animal Factory Farm, an anthropomorphic, sentimental, and splendidly nutty Magnificat with echoes of Blake."

FROM THE GUARDIAN: "A very disturbing book...the Anti-Vivisection Society should consider distributing free copies."

FROM THE LISTENER: "A faint but authentic Blakeian echo in Mr. Kotzwinkle's rage, gives the book the voltage necessary to bypass insulating ideas and strike right into the emotions. If it is not a criticism of life, it is certainly a savage review of it."

FROM PLAYBOY: "Disney isn't going to pick it up for a feature length cartoon."
