About this title


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."
