Reviews
"[A] canny, funny, impressively detailed debut novel ... [from] a novelist of real substance and promise."
--The New York Times Book Review
"[A] gripping, ambitious debut novel ...The drama builds palpably and haphazardly, drawing the invading crew and invaded population together until, in a moment of cathartic bloodshed, reality and fiction collide ... the story never flags thanks to the ferocious momentum of [Wilson's] prose. This is a vivid, scary novel."
--Publishers Weekly
"This is the smartest kind of horror, one that understands and enjoys the trappings while making us squirmingly aware of the moral contortions required to enjoy them. A highly unusual breath of fetid air."
--Booklist (starred review)
"[A]n exciting debut that reads like a perfectly paced horror novel but offers an unusually close and multilayered examination of violence and art."
--Library Journal
"Joining the ranks of recent hotly anticipated crime novels such as The Girls, Kea Wilson's We Eat Our Own steps back to the 1970s with a blood-curdling horror story about making a movie in the Amazon."
--Playboy
"This terrifying yarn never wavers for a moment."
--Providence Journal
"[A]n exciting, impressive debut."
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"[A]n engrossing, atmospheric and at times morbidly funny story that reads as a horrifying thriller and plays with deeper themes of art and artifice."
--Shelf Awareness
"Wilson's novel is a captivating look at the complicated relationship between human action and identity."
--Webster-Kirkwood Times
