Critical acclaim for Doctor Pluss:

"Doctor Pluss is exceptionally well developed and emotionally compelling, connecting metaphorical description with experiences that often challenge the traditional roles of doctor and patient, linking them in unexpected ways … Couteau is not afraid to push the literary boundaries of convention in pursuit of a different form of descriptive truth, bringing readers along in a rollicking ride through schizophrenic experience that ultimately questions the foundations of reality and perception from both sides of the therapist's couch … His interpretations and descriptions of the schizophrenic experience are particularly astute, astonishing, and evocatively described … Readers who choose Doctor Pluss are in for a treat. It's like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest on steroids: a thought-provoking examination of sanity, insanity, and the crossover process that leaves readers thinking long after this therapeutic slice of life is consumed."

– Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review (April 2020).

"Amazingly beautiful, haunting prose. It’s a great book."

– Christopher Sawyer-Lauçanno, author of The Continual Pilgrimage: American Writers in Paris (City Lights), An Invisible Spectator: A Biography of Paul Bowles (Grove Press).

"Intellectual freshness, richness, and potency ... Couteau is an impressively creative writer, whom Barney Rosset urged me to review."

– Jim Feast, former assistant editor of the Evergreen Review.
