"Steven Dunn's POTTED MEAT is full of wonder and silence and beauty and strangeness and ugliness and sadness and truth and hope. I am so happy it is in the world. This book needs to be read." Laird Hunt

"POTTED MEAT is an extraordinary book. Here is an emerging voice that calls us to attention. I have no doubt that Steven Dunn's writing is here, like a visceral intervention across the surface of language, simultaneously cutting to its depths, to change the world. My first attempt at offering words in this context was to write: thank you. And that is how I feel about Steven Dunn's writing; I feel grateful: to be alive during the time in which he writes books." Selah Saterstrom"
