Observations on the History & Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants
"Rats: A Remarkable and Unexpectedly Elegant Dive into the World of the Unloved" is an engaging and enlightening book that redefines our perception of the dirty and disgusting creature. Robert Sullivan's critically acclaimed bestseller reveals the rat as a city dweller and survivor on the effluvia of our society, and its unexpected friends and foes including exterminators, sanitation workers, agitators, and activists. Through Sullivan's well-crafted narrative, readers will gain a deeper understanding of the largely unrecorded history of the city and its rats. Despite being sometimes disgusting, Rats is funny, wise, informative, and always compulsively readable, earning its place among great classics of nature writing.
