You Know You Want This (Hardcover)
Hard-pressed to find time to read lengthy novels? Try this collection of offbeat, provocative stories! Ranging from the mundane to the truly fantastical, Roupenian's short storieswill shock you (in a good way!) from the first page.
At its heart, this collection explores how women are limited by our current world and the perverted ways in which we might be forced to act to gain an inkling of respect or power.— Kiwi

“I was completely enthralled with Kristen Roupenian’s ‘Cat Person’ story in the New Yorker and couldn’t wait to pick up her collection. Like ‘Cat Person,’ each story pushes boundaries, holding a magnifying glass up to social norms and what our society accepts. The writing is fantastic, and the cadence of each story is strikingly unique. This book will delight fans of Roupenian’s viral story and will start many more conversations in its wake.”
