By Robert Sullivan
Love them or detest them, rats are right here to stay-they are urban dwellers up to (or greater than) we're, surviving at the effluvia of our society. In Rats, the significantly acclaimed bestseller, Robert Sullivan spends a 12 months investigating a rat-infested alley quite a few blocks clear of Wall road. Sullivan will get to understand not only the beast yet its buddies and foes: the exterminators, the sanitation staff, the agitators and activists who've performed their half within the centuries-old warfare among human urban dweller and wild urban rat. Sullivan appears to be like deep into the mostly unrecorded heritage of the town and its masses-its herds-of-rats-like mob. humorous, clever, occasionally disgusting yet consistently compulsively readable, Rats earns its not likely position along the nice classics of nature writing.
