The Women of WHC are pleased to welcome Erica Katz to join us via Zoom to discuss her book, The Boys’ Club.

One of Buz­zfeeds 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 Spot­lightMani­ac, 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.
