Editorial Reviews

Review

This anticmystery, in a tradition -- and on a terrain -- familiar to fans of RaymondChandler and Ross Macdonald, amuses as it intrigues.
                        The New York Times
 
An impressivelysustained, original mix of fairy tale and burlesque ... Wacky!
                        Publishers Weekly
 
A decidedlydifferent and thoroughly enjoyable piece of fiction.  Highly recommended.
                        Roanoke Times and World News
 
It's fun.  And crazy.And it works.  Gary K. Wolf hascreated a fast-moving send up of the classic trench coat thriller, turned theworld 90 degrees to the left and then stirred in the barnyard beasties of thecomic pages.  The action staysfrantic.  Wolf creates a world wacky andreal enough to keep you turning the page.
                        Long Beach Independent Press Telegram
 
The style is awell-oiled version of Raymond Chandler, and the characters are about what onewould expect if Daffy Duck were to become the producer of "Wild Kingdom".  Hilarious.
                        Kansas City Star
 
The ultimatetongue-in-cheek burlesque of the typical hard-boiled private eye thriller.  WhoCensored Roger Rabbit? stands with the true detective epics of the '30s and'40s.
                        Jacksonville Times Union
 
 
A wild, wackyand highly original story which never has a dull moment.
                        Chattanooga News-Free Press
 
 
Wolf's writingis genuinely funny.  His characterswander around in a Chandleresque Disneyland of comic violence that is surrealwithout being unrealistic.  He also trotsout every cliché imaginable in the detective/mystery genre, and milks them forevery laugh, or groan, that he can get.

About the Author

It was watching Saturday morning cartoons "for research purposes" that inspired Wolf's idea for Roger Rabbit.

"It was during the commercials," says Wolf. "I saw Tony the Tiger and the Trix Rabbit, and Cap'n Crunch, cartoon characters, talking to real people. And nobody seemed to think that was odd. I thought, 'What a great idea for a novel. A place where Toons lived side by side with humans.' I wove that into a mystery, and bingo, I had my book."

His innovative concept was the basis for the novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? Wolf found his idea hard to sell -- this time to publishers. Even with three well reviewed science fiction novels to his credit, it took Wolf two years and 110 rejections to find a publisher for his unusual book. "Publishers told me it was too esoteric. Too weird. Nobody would understand it," Wolf explains. Finally, a small publisher took a chance and brought it out. Soon after, Walt Disney Pictures came calling. Disney and Steven Spielberg teamed up to make Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The film became the most critically acclaimed and highest-grossing film of 1988, bringing in more than $750 million at the box office as well as four Academy Awards.

 
Wolf has written ten novels. 
 
He currently lives in Boston. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
