very informative fun to read includes many cases and variations, good way to get knowledgable I came across this little gem at a book fair last week Being dumped by the local library for 1.
This this is a quite delightful look at cannibalism from it s earliest sacred roots, through necessity a certain plane crash in the Andes , and human munching serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer.
Well written, absorbing, and leavened with the writer s wonderfully sarcastic sense of humour.
I had read a fair bit about the subject, but the writer still covered area I didn t know about, like Colorado cannibal Alferd Packer.
The book is not particularly gory, so you can read it without danger of losing your lunch It might be hard to find as the book was originally published in 1994.
