Description: Greeted with wide critical acclaim, "The Red Hourglass" is a starkly beautiful, poetic, and often dryly funny literary exploration into the motives and mechanics of predators in the natural world.

Snake venom that digests human flesh. A building cleared of every living body by a band of tiny spiders. An infant insect eating its living prey from within, saving the vital organs for last. These are among the deadly feats of natural engineering to be witnessed in "The Red Hourglass". A witty and intrepid guide through a world where mating ends in cannibalism, and where killers possess toxins so lethal they defy notions of a benevolent creator, Grice shows readers a world they will recognize, despite its exotic strangeness, as the world in which they live.
