Little Star is “a sophisticated, wise and fierce little magazine. Filled with works in translation, painfully underrated writers like the brilliant Kathryn Davis and lovingly put together, I was impressed with it from start to finish.”
—Jessa Crispin

A very fine venture indeed… everything such a magazine should be.
—John Banville
