I really loved every single story in this book. They’re all so grim and wonderful. Each one was a page turner. I enjoyed Cat Person before I purchased the book.

Interesting. Edgy. Interesting. Definitely not a book for people who like trigger warnings.

While Roupenian isn't Saunders (yet), I really, really enjoyed reading her short story collection. Published on the strength of "Cat Person" which was published in the New Yorker and went viral, Roupenian's other stories push the boundaries, but in almost all of them, I could relate on some level to the interior dialogue of her characters. What I loved the most about her work is that she is fearless. She does not shy away from pushing the boundaries. I wouldn't say every story lands the punch she sets up, but I totally look forward to reading more of her. I was never bored; not for one second. That's not an easy feat for any writer. I'm very excited to see what else she does.

*I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway*

While I will say that I liked some of the stories more than others (as is usually the case with short story collections), all of the stories were well written. They were disturbing and intense but I just couldn't look away.

Cat Person story book. Good, but a bit indulgent in that every story covers a particular, narrow perversity and it becomes a bit tedious in that way. I like a good perverse story and there are a few here- Cat person, bad boy (though that ending... really- did it have to play out like that?), the good guy, but sustaining that one theme... kind of like a theme album is a bit too much for her, I think. thinking she might have it out of her system by now?
