"His perceptive, poetic ear for unpicking the workings of troubled inner lives is exceptional." – Uncut "My personal favorite of the batch has to be Joe Pernice’s autobiographic-fiction fantasia on The Smiths’ Meat Is Murder. Stirring, evocative reading, and like the other two books, it made me want to seek out and hear the music again. – Michael Layne Heath, Tangents "Meat is Murder is a page-scorcher, especially when you see Pernice's own experiences practically oozing from the text." – Filter magazine "Pernice captures the essence of the anglophile UK indie lovers that exist in little groups all over North America...Pernice's novella captures [the] feelings of the despair of possibility, of rushing out to meet the world and the world rushing in to meet you, and the price of that meeting. As sound tracked by the Smiths." – Drowned in Sound "The novella by the leader of the lush, sad-eyed indie-pop band the Pernice Brothers is full of mordant wit and real heartache. And his fictional (though heavily autobiographical) tale of a tortured Massachusetts high school student who finds solace by listening to Morissey is a dead-on depiction of what it feels like when pop music articulates your pain with an elegance you could never hope to muster… [H]is tale of a lonesome boy, a Walkman, and Meat is Murder does a brilliant job of capturing how, in a world that doesn't care, listening to your favorite album can save your life." – The Philadelphia Inquirer
