There are writers who have the gift of immediately engaging their readers with the sure knowledge that what will follow will be unlike anything else they've read. Jules Archer is one such writer. In Little Feasts, we are invited to a table overflowing with bold, sometimes bizarre, often tender, and deliciously original stories. This work is reminiscent of Miranda July with a dash of Aimee Bender, but make no mistake, it's 100% Jules Archer, a writer of rare verve, compassion, and wit. Indulge, lucky readers!
—Kathy Fish, author of Together We Can Bury It & Wild Life
Jules Archer is a master storyteller of hidden desires and dark dreams. In Little Feasts, she pulls the reader into the wholly human tales of cannibals and killers, liars and queens. These stories are made to be devoured, but they are devourers too. These are stories to get lost in. These are stories to be found in. They will grab you and remind you: This is what it is to want.
—Cathy Ulrich, author of Ghosts of You
