Home > Events > Learn > Women of WHC Present: Erica Katz
The Women of WHC are pleased to welcome Erica Katz to join us via Zoom to discuss her book, The Boys’ Club.
One of Buzzfeed’s Most Anticipated Books of 2020, Erica Katz’s The Boys’ Club is a razor-sharp debut novel that brilliantly captures today’s cultural zeitgeist. Taking readers inside one of the world’s most prestigious and high-powered law firms, this incisive page-turner — already optioned for Netflix by producers of Spotlight, Maniac, and The OA—offers a nuanced portrait, informed by the author’s own professional experiences in a Manhattan law firm, of the misogyny and sexual dynamics pervasive in corporate America. Fresh out of Harvard Law, Alex Vogel has abandoned her do-gooder impulses and accepted a much-coveted associate position at the Manhattan office of Klasko & Fitch, one of the most prestigious law firms in the world. While she finds herself working harder than she ever imagined, she also enjoys the luxury perks of the job. But the clients seem to expect more and more of her, and she becomes privy to inside knowledge about the relationship between the firm and its largest financial client. Her conscience starts niggling at her — then one night something happens that makes it impossible for her to continue to ignore the toxic underpinnings. Called to action, she puts everything on the line to reveal the truth. The Boys’ Club is an insider’s exposé wrapped in a deliciously propulsive fictional narrative.
A buzzy page turner about sex & power in the halls of corporate America, anyone looking for a dive into a character finding their way into adulthood will enjoy this read. There’s a harsh realism entwined in every detail.
