"[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.”
"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."
“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.”
"This terrifying yarn never wavers for a moment."
"[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."
"Wilson's novel is a captivating look at the complicated relationship between human action and identity."
