What makes a person “difficult”? Fiction writer, essayist, and activist Roxane Gay has been called “the brilliant girl-next-door: your best friend and your sharpest critic” by People magazine. She has authored the stunning novel ‘An Untamed State,’ the powerhouse essay collection ‘Bad Feminist,’ and now a new collection of stories, ‘Difficult Women,’ where she casts her incisive gaze at issues of race, class and gender. Famed for both fearlessness and vulnerability on the page, she tackles issues that lie at the heart of body, identity, relationship and society. In conversation with Rafia Zakaria of The New Republic.
