Easy Meat – a new book by Rachel Trezise – the reviews are in…

It has been only three weeks since Rachel’s Trezise’s new novel, Easy Meat, was released and already, Trezise’s book has been given some stunning reviews, whilst also being named Wales Book of the Month by the Books Council of Wales. Take a look at some of the reviews Easy Meat has received so far below:


Simon Wright on BBC Radio Wales’ The Review Show:

[Easy Meat] is about cynicism, the loss of hope [and] clinging onto the thread of some dream.’


Polly Winn in The Welsh Agenda (Spring/Summer 2021):


Easy Meat provides a valuable and moving snapshot in time from an area so often commented upon amidst the [Brexit] debate yet too often with an absence of local voices.’


Martha O’Brien in Wales Arts Review:

‘This is a novel about grief, poverty, and how the disparate struggles of individuals in a society can impact that society in dramatic ways.’


Gary Raymond on Twitter: 

‘Journalists, commentators, statisticians, blowhards, politicians, all scrambling around trying to understand the Welsh Brexit vote, and here is proof they should have just asked a novelist. We should be extremely proud to have a writer like [Rachel Trezise] in Wales.’


Holly Porter on The StoryGraph:

‘Yes, the story is politically inclined, but in no way is Easy Meat ever dull as Trezise takes the saying ‘like a lamb to the slaughter’, and gives it a whole new meaning.’ 


Dr Emma Schofield in Film | EASY MEAT by Rachel Trezise:

‘[Easy Meat] is about finding our identity and seeing our own voices out there.’


Mike Parker on Twitter:

‘Set on the referendum day 5 years ago in a Valleys community in south Wales, it is one of the best assessments I’ve read of how we are where we are.’


Noel Megahey on The Digital Fix:

‘Seldom have I seen a book that deals in such a way with the realities of people's lives in the here and now.’


Carolyn Hitt in Film | EASY MEAT by Rachel Trezise:

 ‘[Easy Meat] is packed with Rachel’s trade-mark writing, […] there's that real kind of sharpness and humour, and darkness as well.’


Dylan Moore in The National:

‘A one-sitting page-turner that gives voice to the voiceless while checking the country’s pulse, never once flinching from the contradictions of everyday life in modern Wales.’
