'Smart, gleeful, savage, funny and genuinely brilliant. I kept wanting to cry out with joy! Katerina Gibson is a superstar.' -- Miles Allison, author of In Moonland and Fever of Animals 'Women I Know is a rich, contemporary blend of inventive and entertaining writing. Dark and funny, Katerina Gibson's stories are sparkling with ideas - it's thrilling that the future of Australian fiction is held in such talented hands.' -- Ben Walter, author of What Fear Was 'Come for the bold conceits, stay for the savage disaffection. These mind-bending stories startle, surprise, beguile and devastate. Gibson's talent, in striking out from the shores of realism, is to bring us closer to the truths of contemporary life.' -- Jo Lennan, author of In the Time of Foxes
