You Know You Want This, by Kristen Roupenian

32.00

This has to be one of — if not the — most anticipated short-story collections ever. Kristen Roupenian’s “Cat Person” went viral after being published in The New Yorker last year. This book contains that story plus a whole bunch more that make clear that Roupenian is no one-hit wonder. Piercing truth and fresh new takes galore.

Flying Books Guest Chooser for February, Tamara Faith Berger, says:

”Playing off the viral notoriety of ‘Cat Person,’ originally published in the New Yorker about a year ago, Roupenian's stories are really good at nasty, elucidating the ways that desire marinates cruelty. The story that most resembles ‘Cat Person’ is ‘The Good Guy,’ which culminates on a gurney with the reveal: ‘it is possible to enjoy something and yet not care about it in the slightest.’ In the same vein, ‘Death Wish’ features a mysteriously masochistic chick who rolls around a suitcase and wants to get punched in the face. ‘It doesn't matter if you're into it,’ the chick says. ‘I'm into it. And that's what I need to happen if we're going to fuck.’ This compulsive collection shows how our basest thoughts are self-implicating.”
