WINNER OF THE WORLD FANTASY AWARD "DOCTOR RAT is dazzlingly original, witty and insanely satiric. It is also occasionally quite beautiful. Kotzwinkle's tale is a dizzying montage...from scenes of gross black humor in the experimental lab to idyllic glimpses of the animal kingdom. Designed to shock us into ecological awareness, Kotzwinkle's lab experiments are hair-raising." --Los Angeles Times A bloodcurdling novel in the spirit of ANIMAL FARM and 1984, DOCTOR RAT is a trip through a laboratory worthy of a Nazi mad doctor, except this doctor is a wisecracking rodent who could have been played by Groucho Marx. The London Times called DOCTOR RAT, "a splendidly nutty animal Magnificat with echoes of William Blake." "Mr. Kotzwinkle is a first-rate fabulist." --The New York Times -- William Kotzwinkle books at E-Reads: DOCTOR RAT, FATA MORGANA, THE EXILE

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."About the Author:
