Difficult Women by Roxanne Gay – Book Review

Having read Bad Feminist and Hunger recently, I feel like I know Roxane Gay. I’m also extremely aware that I know only what she wants to put out into the world. I know her story and was interested to read her fiction having read her essays.

Gay’s writing is beautiful, even when telling horrible stories. She creates these beautiful worlds, these women who are challenging or challenged. The story that stuck with me the most is of the sisters who need to hold each other tight, to save themselves. My heart broke many times as I read this.
