Erica Katz, The Boys’ Club
Erica Katz discusses her novel, The Boys’ Club, with author and screenwriter Peter Gethers.
Sweetbitter meets The Firm in this page-turning debut novel – already optioned to Netflix – about sex and power in the halls of corporate America. Protagonist Alex Vogel is a high achiever who lands her dream job at a prestigious Manhattan law firm. When the dark reality of the firm becomes clear, Alex comes to understand the ways women like her are told – explicitly and implicitly – how they need to behave to succeed in the workplace. Now, she can no longer stand by silently even if it means putting everything on the line to expose the truth.
