“Powerful, ambitious…. Fast-paced and full of surprises…. Lyrically beautiful…. Whitehead … weaves the voices of several characters into a compelling psychological portrait of a people on the brink of ruin.” - The Globe and Mail
“A thriller with a Joseph Conrad-inspired plot … [but also] a psychological novel in disguise…. The book’s strength lies in how it depicts Native magic as an experiential reality, respecting the mystery of rituals while avoiding the academic tendency to explain away the sacred.” - The Walrus Magazine
“Engaging.” - The Vancouver Observer
“Unflinching and rigorously unsentimental, The Cannibal Spirit is a thought-provoking and impressive read.” - Quill & Quire
“A surrealistic journey into the heart of darkness where different cultural traditions come together in one man.” - North Shore News
