Book launch

When Kristen Roupenian’s short story ‘Cat Person’ was published in the New Yorker in late 2017, it went viral, becoming the second-most-emailed page on the magazine’s website in that entire year. Appearing at the height of the #metoo movement, it kicked off heated discussions about desire, consent and bad sex in casual relationships. It is one of the stories in the collection ‘You Know You Want This’ (translated for Nieuw-Amsterdam Publishers into Dutch as ‘Je weet dat je dit wil’).
