Clifford Chase discusses Winkie!

Winkie is the darkly humorous, engagingly-written story about an old and worn teddy bear named Winkie, who, after being passed along from child to child, mysteriously comes to life and escapes to the wild. Eating for the first time, and other bodily functions, are vividly described as experienced by the bear who also comes to give birth. But -- in a nightmarish twist he is surrounded at a forest cabin by an FBI swat team, imprisoned and accused of multiple counts of terrorism. He is then put on trial in a process that would awe Kafka.

Critical Praise for Winkie

"A mix of surreal comedy and political satire"— Scott Veale, The New York Times

“Winkie offers readers a sort of odd, outrageous delight. A verve and a nostalgia... that it is no crime to indulge.” —The San Francisco Chronicle
