Editorial Reviews

Review

"This short, artfully structured, supremely insane novelis Buddha's story, turned inside out. Horse Badorties walks into Americanliterature a full-blown achievement, a heroic godheaded head, a splendid creep,a sublime prince of the holy trash pile. Send congratulations to WilliamKotzwinkle, also a hero, man." WilliamKennedy, New Republic
 
"Kotzwinkle's story of a drug-flavored, flailing genius isa fine piece of work that deserves to wind up in some college lit class of thefuture, along with Thompson and Wolfe." Rolling Stone
 
"The Fan Man cuts through so many games that it leaves atrail of clear light." Ram Dass
 
"A delightfully, often devastatingly funny novel. WilliamKotzwinkle has created a new kind of character who, while dwelling in therealms of the fantastic, touches upon far more aspects of contemporary lifethen do many so-called American characters. (Horse is a) kind of Ginger Man,Lucky Jim, Huck Finn, and Easy Rider all mixed up in one. A marvelouscreation." Seattle Times
 
"This is one of my favorite books. Ever. Kotzwinkle'sdoped-up, cooled-out street bum - whose prize possessions include the self-givenmantra "Dorky" and a fan that hums with the universe - lives on."QPB Review
 
"Hilarious. The Aquarian age found its correct chronicler in thisbook." San Francisco Review of Books
 
"Kotzwinkle has invented a human dada, full of one-linegags and comic perceptions." NewYork Times Book Review
 
"Old Horse is one hell of a character, man." Philadelphia Bulletin
 
"The landmark novel of the dusking of the Age of Aquariusis William Kotzwinkle's The Fan Man." HerbertGold
