Need another reason to visit the city?

"In British towns and cities, they say you are never more than 15 feet away from the nearest rat"

"If you are in New York while you are reading this sentence," Sullivan says, "or even in any other major city... then you are in proximity to two or more rats having sex."

"Male rats can mate with 20 females in a few hours; the gestation period is just three weeks; the average litter is up to 20 pups."


Excerpts from this review of Rats: A Year with New York's Most Unwanted Inhabitants, this year's must-read.
