Jessica Treat's stories invite readers in, only to make them complicit in transgressive acts, real or imagined: adultery, trespassing , sexual jealousy. Her dark humor and portrayal of consciousness recall authors as diverse as Amy Hempel, Mary Caponegro, and Lydia Davis. Comic, skillful, and menacing, the stories in Meat Eaters & Plant Eaters haunt us long after we've fallen under their spell. Jessica Treat is author of two story collections: A Robber in the House (Coffee House Press) and Not a Chance (FC2). Her stories appear in anthologies and journals, including Ms. Magazine, Black Warrior Review, and American Literary Review.
