You Know You Want This: “Cat Person” and Other Stories

Kristen Roupenian

at the Free Library of Phildelphia

Kristen Roupenian holds a PhD in English from Harvard and an MFA from the University of Michigan. Originally published in The New Yorker in 2017, her story “Cat Person” garnered national attention for its frank depiction of dating in the digital age. Included in The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2018, it is now the cornerstone of Roupenian’s debut story collection. Genre-leaping and theme-bouncing from the supernatural to the super mundane, You Know You Want This explores sexuality, Schadenfreude, and gender power struggles.
