September Book Club: Women I Know by Katerina Gibson

Women I Know
by Katerina Gibson


Join us and Katerina Gibson as we discuss their debut collection 'Women I Know' for September's Book Club.

Unpicking the stitches of gender and genre, the stories in this searing, funny, haunting debut explore how our ideas of womanhood shape us, and what they cost us.

'My God darling - the women I know.'

A young woman tries to cheat her algorithm, creating a wholesome online persona while her 'real' life dissipates. A grandmother speaks to her granddaughter through the fog of generations. Two lovers divide over alternative meat options. A factory worker fits eyes in companion dolls until she is called on to install her own.

The women I know are sharp, absurd, sly, wrong, wry, repressed, hungry, horny, bold, envious, dominating, uncertain, overdetermined, underpaid, bored, smart, crystalizing, themselves.

A burning talent with growing international recognition, Katerina Gibson's work has appeared in Granta, Kill Your Darlings, Overland and elsewhere. She is the Pacific regional winner of the 2021 Commonwealth Short Story Prize and recipient of the Felix Meyer Scholarship.
