About Sky Burial:

"Levin's gaze is unflinching, and the reader is implicated and challenged at every turn."

"Levin's work is phenomenological; it details how it feels to be an embodied consciousness making its way through the world: the I casting itself outward by means of the eye."
Boston Review
