Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Gently Into The Land Of The Meateaters is a fascinating collection of James Sallis' autobiographical essays and observations as he draws meaning from tragedy, provides solace to the weak and vulnerable, gathers truth from love, understanding from what we do to each other; and solace from what we do to try to make up for it. Sallis is an experienced and gifted writer able to convey directly to his reader a sense of intimacy, candor, insight, and inspiration.
