Roxane Gay is an American writer born in 1974. She has made appearances everywhere from the Best American Mystery Stories to the Best American Short stories, not to mention the New York times Book review and the Los Angeles Times.

+Biography

Roxane’s parents have their roots in Haiti, though she grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. The author attended Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire and eventually acquired her Doctorate from Michigan Technological University.

Because her family was always on the move for one reason or another, Roxane rarely mingled with people and didn’t have nearly as many friends as many people her age. As such, it wasn’t a surprise that she grew to love books.

They became her constant companion and soon drove her to begin writing. Her educational path eventually led her to a Ph.D. in rhetoric and technical communication.

Most people who have heard the name Roxane Gay know her as a feminist. She hasn’t shied away from talking about her most traumatic childhood memory. Roxane was sexually assaulted when she was 12.

Her efforts since that moment have been influenced and, to an extent, driven by her experience back then. The author’s works have a recurring theme and almost always revolve around issues of sexuality and racism, not to mention gender identity.

Roxane’s writing efforts can be found in all manner of mediums. She has captured hearts and minds with her frank approach to today’s issues. And her efforts are not only restricted to writing.

Rather, the author is also a teacher. She began down this path in 2010 when she became an assistant professor at Eastern Illinois University. She eventually left for Purdue University to work as an associate professor of creative writing.

Though, her time at Eastern Illinois University bore her a lot of fruit, with Roxane Gray not only founding Tiny Hardcore Press but also contributing to Bluestem Magazine during that period.

The author has become most prominently associated with ‘Bad Feminist’, a collection of essays that was released in 2014, this along with ‘Untamed State’, a novel she also had published in the same year.

Roxane Gay has been commended for writing with a simple and direct approach. She shows a determination to confront those aspects of society that she cares about, and she does so with a sense of intimacy, never cold and detached or even sterile.

Roxane is very vocal about her feminism. She always speaks about how the movement has influenced her life, sometimes in negative ways. She is always engaging with opponents and proponents of her work and endeavoring to deconstruct feminist and even racial issues, and she does so from the perspective of her own personal experiences.

People have continued to recommend her work because Roxane is never extreme. Instead, she tries to be as subtle and inclusive as possible in her discourse. She is always open to other points of view, even those that contradict her own.

She has also been praised for being a gentle and inviting voice of advice on social media.

+Bad Feminist

Bad Feminist is a collection of essays from Roxane Gay. The book analyses Roxane’s journey as a woman of color. It also explores the modern culture and the manner in which it has evolved.

Feminism stands at the center of the book, this along with Roxane’s own personal understanding of the world and its ways. The essays portray Roxane as a woman who is still struggling to understand herself and the community she inhabits.

The book is sharp and witty and it doesn’t shy away from taking as keen and analytical a look at society as possible.

Not many people realize that essays are an actual literary genre. This particular collection of essays kicks things off with Roxane Gay explaining the concept of a bad feminist.

She recognizes that she is an imperfect woman, yet she lives in a world that expects women to be perfect in all things. She also tackles the fact that the ‘feminist’ tag has very negative connotations in this day and age, and a lot of women endeavor to avoid being called feminists.

Roxane makes more of an effort to analyze pop culture through the prism of feminism than most people might expect; and for that reason, it is easy to see why some people dismiss this book, particularly those people for whom pop culture is unimportant.

The author also makes no effort to present some sort of unifying form of feminism; instead, she makes observations about the different types of feminism in general, this along with tackling race and her own experience with those issues.

Roxane doesn’t attempt to bring any new ideals across. Instead, she simply presents what she has seen, heard and observed. And she does so in a manner that will appeal to modern audiences.

+Difficult Women

‘Difficult women’ is a collection of short stories from Roxane Gay. The short stories follow women from diverse backgrounds, some of whom are privileged while others are in poverty.

They live very interesting lives, this including twin sisters who have been inseparable since they were abducted as children and they must now negotiate one of their weddings, a stripper who must contend with a client’s over eager advances and a black engineer that moves to upper Michigan.

Roxane Gay’s readers seem to appreciate her short stories more than they do her essays, considering the positive reception this book has received. The women in this book each struggle with something or someone.

And Roxane tackles their traumatic experiences in as straightforward a manner as possible. She doesn’t leave any brutal word unsaid, nor does she ignore the difficult truths behind the mistakes and experiences of some of her characters.

Themes like love, hate, violence, and loss permeate throughout the short stories. Each woman stands out as an individual, and each one of them draws readers in as they struggle with life.

As with most short story collections, some short stories are better than others. Some are forgettable while others stay with you for long periods of time. It was the publication of this book that made Roxane Gay very difficult to ignore, giving her the attention and recognition she deserves.

Roxane has been writing since her teenage years, and this book manifests her many experiences.
