"Of all the anti-Bush books out there, none is as wonderfully strange as Chase's debut novel." -Entertainment Weekly (A)
"This debut novel from memoirist Chase begins with the capture and wounding by a SWAT team of the eponymous, sentient teddy bear in a backwoods cabin; the team thinks it has captured a mad bomber...[Winkie] way too odd to be sentimental, and its political sensibility shuttles easily between the cartoonish and the shrewd." -American Library Association
