    I went into this equally curious and suspicious I applaud a writer who gets the internet talking about a short story , but the hype around Roupenian s debut collection has gathered proportions that invite some kind of backlash Looking at the actual material, the book as a whole is a little uneven and in parts feels underdeveloped, but hell, this is an exciting writer who has the potential to go places Roupenian ventures into the darker recesses of the I went into this equally curious and suspici [...]

    Wow, what a crazy collection of short stories this was Kristen Roupenian s debut collection, You Know You Want This , is at turns frank, brutal, disturbing, kinky, poignant, emotional, and eye opening Her stories are about relationships of all kinds parental, romantic, sexual, those between friends and lovers, and even those between relative strangers The relationships are rarely equal, in that most often, someone has the upper hand, although it might not always last for long.This collect [...]

    If you were alive and online in 2018, you probably read and talked about Kristen Roupenian s short story, Cat Person Well, get ready for her debut collection, because it s here and ready to punch you in the gut or, perhaps aptly, bite your face off.Drawing comparisons to Carmen Maria Machado and Ottessa Moshfegh, this dark, perverse, macabre collection explores relationships with a distinct focus on power dynamics The subjects are mostly women, and they are at times the victims and the If you we [...]

  4. John Deckersays:

    There are three stories in this that are terribly clunky and out of place I cannot bring myself to give it five stars But the remainder of these are fantastically disgusting This collection takes the absurd and wince worthy all the way sometimes for ambiguous, sometimes sociopolitical reasons and I am here for it.

  5. Jenny (Reading Envy)says:

    I went into these stories braced not to like them I quite enjoyed Cat Person and the surrounding controversy, but heard these stories were full of unlikeable characters and disturbing situations And they are, but Kristen Roupenian has an uncanny sense of the inner lives of people their messy, uncomfortable, inner lives There is one story in here that feels like it doesn t fit unless you think of the characters as cat people And really, it does fit in the way that the male character is a wh I wen [...]

  6. Jessica Woodburysays:

    3.5 starsI don t blame anyone for wanting to immediately capitalize on the massive success of Cat Person by getting a collection of stories out as soon as possible, but I can still wish they d waited a bit until the collection was solid and cohesive.I do not mind so much that the stories here can vary quite widely in theme, style, and genre But there are two or three particular buckets you can sort them into rather than a mosaic of a wide variety of styles, leaving it feeling like a few 3.5 star [...]

  7. LittleSophiesays:

    These stories were a mixed bag and my suspicion is, that the publisher asked Roupenian, after the phenomenal success of Cat Person, if she had any other stories to publish A lot of them feel quite unpolished and young, relying on shock value and overstretching the point Cat Person, with its razor sharp observations and truthfulness, still surpasses the other stories by miles Some stories were intriguing, but most of them lacked the mature style of her famous story.I m very much looking forwar Th [...]
