Praise

“Killing It: An Education (Penguin Press) is as unflinching as one might imagine a book with that title to be, but it’s also humanizing and thoughtful—with the butchery comes a journey of self-realization applicable far beyond the realm of animals or food.” — Vanity Fair

“A skilled storyteller . . . Davis takes the essential need to eat and compels us to examine how, why and what we consume, without preaching or judging.” — Minneapolis Star Tribune

Killing It is both a sensual and sensitive ode to the necessity of lifelong learning and a deep look into the painstaking work of turning animals into “farm to table” food that is simultaneously highly prized and depressingly devalued in U.S. culture.” — Salon

“With grace and power, first-time author Davis tells of how she traded a keyboard for a cleaver…. Her powerful writing and gift for vivid description allow readers to feel as if they, too, are embarking on a life-changing journey.” — Publishers Weekly
 
“Finding beauty and moral high ground in the abattoir ….The making of a young female entrepreneur rendered in unvarnished detail.” — Kirkus

“Davis writes with the precision and pacing of a former editor, but one who has gained experience that extends well beyond Manhattan skyscrapers.”
