"The characters in John Harvey's urban crime novels are so defiantly alive and unruly that they put these British police procedurals on a shelf all by themselves. The author animates an entire family in 'Easy Meat', studying them in obsessive detail to determine what makes them the way they are....Mr. Harvey writes with painful urgency about the kind of sexual and psychological abuse that no child can completely outgrow. If this is one of Mr. Harvey's darkest books, it is also one of his most enlightened."
"Without question, 'Easy Meat' is John Harvey's best."
"Pacey, sober and compassionate, with a feeling for here and now authentic enough to pack in a time capsule...A terrific return to form by Harvey."
