Book Cover of Difficult Women. A sentimental heart is shaped from blooms of firey smoke between the title and the author's name.

Difficult Women 

Roxane Gay

Roxane Gay’s “commanding debut” (The New Yorker) novel An Untamed State, the tale of a willful Haitian kidnap victim, was a finalist for the Dayton Literary Prize for Fiction. She is also the author of the acclaimed essay collection Bad Feminist and the forthcoming memoir Hunger, and her other writing has appeared in dozens of publications, including the New York Times, Best American Short Stories, and McSweeney’s. Gay is also the founder of Tiny Hardcore Press and co-editor of PANK, a nonprofit literary arts collective. A story collection of the privileged and impoverished, the loved and forsaken, Difficult Women portrays a beautiful, haunting cross-section of modern America.
