  • It is books like this that make me happy that I m going back over my book collection to review them for this site I received Crispin Hellion Glover s yes, its the same guy you know and love from the movies book Rat Catching as a gift two Christmases ago To be honest, this really isn t a novel, but a work of art Glover has contorted and manipulated a book about rats into something twisted and strange He adds drawings and images of things like plague victims and rabbits and lambs even a platypus a [...]


  • Bought the book at the Tower Theater in Salt Lake City when Crispin appeared there to perform the book on stage using a slide show and holding a long wooden pointer.We also watched Rueben and Ed.When I met him on that occasion, Mr Glover came across to me as a warm, considerate, and intelligent person very unlike any of his stage personae but then, who can tell when an accomplished actor is in character Unfortunately, I lost the book years ago along with many other prized possessions Thank you, [...]


  • I purchased autographed copies of his books when I was a teenager They are worth owning for the imagery, prose and exquisite binding, but mostly because Crispin Glover is a genius We saw him last year at the Castro Theater and met him afterward We had a nice thorough conversation with him which was guided mostly by HIM asking US questions Love him.


  • I believe this is actually another book about rodent extermination that Crispin simply edited with white out, rewriting some of the sentences and turning it into a psuedo narrative I don t know how to describe it some might say genius I m still on the fence but it IS very enjoyable


  • Fun and disturbing I like his performance of segments of the book on The Problem Does Not Equal the Solution, the Solution Equals Let It Be The Clean poem is excellent.



  • review of Crispin Hellion Glover s Rat Catching by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE February 15, 2012 Warning to the reader of this review all 3 of my reviews of Glover s bks begin w the same contextualization Otherwise, they aren t the same review I m not very familiar w Crispin Hellion Glover s work I ve heard that he has a bit of a cult following, I ve heard that he was in some, by my standards, big budget films as an actor I ve seen a few of them Back to the Future, River s Edge, The People vs Lar [...]


  • I found this book this week in a used bookstore, noticing it first for the cover, picking it up for the author I ve found Crispin Glover to be absolutely fascinating for a few years now I ve watched almost anything I can find with him in it, and have studied some of his outrageous public appearances many times over I find him to be the very most interesting of any celebrity artist alive today This was actually the second book I noticed at the bookstore, I confess The first was WHAT IT IS, AND H [...]


  • Rat Catching starts off as one of those late 19th century pocket sized handbooks that came over here to the Americas from Britain in some poor immigrant s suitcase who ended up a miner in the mountains I have found a similar book at a rummage sale in a back country mining town It was not on rat catching but on boot making, and was sold to me as having been found in a dusty attic of the deceased aforementioned immigrant.Glover came across this handbook somewhere, long lost into the land of forgot [...]


  • This is so much than just a book, it s also an artwork Written by Crispin Glover you might recognize him as the actor who plays eccentric characters in films like Bartleby, Twister and Willard , its many ink drawings are done with a lot of detail and the entire book is vintage in both illustrations and text.


  • Surrealism What is Surrealism In my opinion, it is above all a reawakening of the poetic idea in art, the reintroduction of the subject but in a very particular sense, that of the strange and illogical Paul Delvaux this is a surrealist reassembly of the 1896 memoir guide book paean to rat catching Studies in the art of rat catching of Henry C Barkley As beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table Comte de Lautr amontit recalls to me the thoughts of [...]


  • All Crispin Glover fans should have this.My other oldest review I m pretty sure I was quoting what my brother said when gifting me this book I wasn t that big of a Crispin Glover fan back then I became one after reading this bizarre book It s not hard to imagine Glover bending over the pages, furiously scribbling doodles of rats and muttering to himself That s kinda endearing to me People who would smile over something like that would like this, I think And my brother I like that he thought of m [...]


  • This isn t so much a book as a piece of art There s no linear story to it, other than what you interpret for yourself Clever, original, funny, creepy and fascinating nothing has inspired me than this in a long time I won t say how it was made or what it looks like, just read it To over analyse I think would spoil it It s just a desirable, beautiful little book ALMOST.


  • Delicious little book It reads like a fragmentary manuscript pulled out of an old trunk, with some key pages missing Wanders all around and through the subject of rat catching, with fabulous illustrations likely to give nightmares to small children.




  • At turns funny, oblique, or flat out disturbing A quick read, and above all, interesting If Glover hasn t brought his live show and movie tour through your town, this is the next best thing.


  • Been wanting this book forevah It was out of print at one time I ll have to search again.He is so damn eccentric indeed
