Maureen FreelyIn his new novel, We Are Now Beginning Our Descent, [Meek] explores the inner life of a foreign correspondent with biting humor and affection…I am full of admiration for Meek's precise and lyrical prose, for his mapping of the political landscapes through which his characters drift and for his evocation of the strange, torn geometries of the life in the global news stream. But what I most treasure in this novel is its generosity. We carry the flaws of the world inside us. But—however difficult, desperate and demented its manifestations—there is also love.
