Editorial Reviews

Seattle Times - Staff Reviewer
A delightfully, often devastatingly funny novel… William Kotzwinkle is a first-rate fabulist and has created in Horse Badorties a new kind of American character who, while dwelling in the realms of the fantastic, touches upon far more aspects of contemporary life then 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 marvelous creation.
New Republic - William Kennedy
This short, artfully structured, supremely insane novel is Buddha's story, turned inside out… Horse Badorties walks into American literature a full-blown achievement, a heroic godheaded head, a splendid creep, a sublime prince of the holy trash pile … send congratulations to William Kotzwinkle, also a hero, man.

    A Hippie Classic

    The first and, so far as I know, still the best portrayal of a pothead in the sixties, when this state of mind was the norm for the 'boomer' generation. And, as befits the subject, it's hilarious too.

    Great book

    One of William Kotzinkle's Great books. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and most of all it made me think. Think about life, think about happiness, and most of all think about what is acceptable in culture today, and what should be done about those bums. My third Kozwinkle book and my favorate.

    Best Book

    This is the first William Kotzwinkle book I have read, but after reading it I am prepared to read more. If you are a fan of Ken Kesey's one flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, read this.

    Take a ride with the Fan Man

    This was one of the best reads I have had this year. Recommended by a friend and read front to cover in one sitting, I was completely facinated and enchanted. Another wonderful piece of work by Kotzwinkle.
