Reviews

"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
"The stories in You Know You Want This are wildly strange and deeply human. When it comes to the secret hurt and twisted desires that lurk in seemingly mundane encounters between men and women, Kristen Roupenian is a super genius. I loved every single word of this freaky, fantastic book." --Julie Buntin, author of Marlena
"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 VanderMeer, New York Times bestselling author of Annihilation
