JESS ARNDT with SARA JAFFE
There is excitement here at Elliott Bay, and beyond, for Jess Arndt’s newly landed debut book of stories, Large Animals (Catapult).
"Arndt’s short stories are delicious flights of fancy, or obsession, or fertile curiosity—or, more accurately, some beguiling combination of all three. . . . This is a playful and provocative collection, full of sly, deft turns of phrase and striking imagery.” —Publishers Weekly.
“Jess Arndt’s Large Animals is wildly original, even as it joins in with the classics of loaded, outlaw literature. Acerbic, ecstatic, hilarious, psychedelic, and affecting in turn, this is an electric debut.” —Maggie Nelson.
In and around her writing, Jess Arndt is also co-founder of New Herring Press.
Jess Arndt appears in conversation with Sara Jaffe, author of Dryland.
