If you recommend it, it's worth giving a shot.

Just finished "Winkie" by Clifford Chase. It's about a teddy bear who wills himself to life, and the US Gov't believes him to be a terrorist and has him detained at Guantanamo.

The book should have been a short story. And Chase seems to take swings at a lot of institutions: the Court system [reminiscent of Kafka's "The Trial"], the Catholic Church and its refusal to evolve with society, and even his own family [Southern Racists]. It's too much and counteracts the satire.
