Roxane Gay is one of our most important cultural critics. She is the author of two New York Times bestselling works of nonfiction, Bad Feminist and Hunger, an intimate exploration of eating, weight, and trauma to be released in paperback in June. She's also written three works of fiction, including the nationally bestselling story collection Difficult Women, contributes to the New York Times op-ed page, and wrote World of Wakanda 1-5 for Marvel. Most recently, she is the editor of Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture, a collection of essays addressing what it means for women to live in a world that asks them to measure and rank the aggression, harassment, and violence they face. Together, Hunger and Not That Bad form a nuanced and often heartbreaking look at the many challenges women confront.
