New & Notable: Difficult Women by Roxane Gay


Acclaimed essayist, powerhouse talent, and twitter icon Roxane Gay has once again delivered on the hype. Difficult Women collects previously published stories, and with them it collects evidence that Gay’s writing deserves the superlatives. Her remarkable language feels raw as an exposed tooth root, and as the reader burrows through these thematically linked stories, one finds that the harshness of the subject matter (violence, rape, desperation, etc.) is negated by Gay’s thoroughly engrossing prose. There is particular care in depicting the body and experiencing the world through the senses, which adds a clarity, an immediacy. This is another knock-out from the American, who is quickly becoming a heavy-hitter!
