Abstract:

Firmin the rat, born in a bookstore basement in Boston's Scollay Square, is forced to compete for food with his larger and meaner brothers and sisters. He begins to devour his surroundings, learns to read, and soon begins to identify more with humans than rodents. Alienated by his family, he seeks the friendship of his hero, the bookseller and a down-on-his luck science fiction writer who frequents the shop. Firmin is then led deep into his own imaginative soul, a place where down-and-out rats alike can find people who adore them.
