When "Cat Person" appeared in the December 11, 2017 issue of The New Yorker, it immediately went viral, becoming the magazine's second most-read article of the year. The Guardian called it "the shorty story that launched a thousand theories," and it became the focus of thought pieces and articles in The New York Times, Elle, Salon, The Daily Mail, and more. Kristen Roupenian now offers a compulsively readable collection of short stories, including the popular "Cat Person," that explore the complex and often darkly humorous connections between gender, sex, and power.

Rights to the collection have been purchased for production by HBO.

"In an age that needs a wrecking ball, You Know You Want This provides one. This is a raucous, visceral page-turner that tunnels into the heart of relationships gone awry, modern-day miscommunications, and other horrors of being human. Not polite. Suffers no fools. Takes no prisoners. Read it." - Jeff VavnderMeer, New York Times bestselling author of Annihilation

"These transgressive and darkly electric stories announce the arrival of a bold, new, necessary voice in American short fiction." - Claire Vaye Watkins, Story Prize-winning "5 Under 35" author of Gold Fame Citrus and Battleborn (9/5/2018)
