From Bad Feminist to Difficult Woman, hear what makes Roxane Gay turn to the dark side in her writing

Bad Feminist writer Roxane Gay uses dry humour and a sharp critical eye to write about pop culture, feminism, race and societal pressures to be thin. She’s a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times, she’s penned fiction (An Untamed State) and a collection of poetry, nonfiction and fiction in Ayiti, drawing on her Haitian heritage. With her new collection of short stories, Difficult Women, on the shop shelves, Gay will talk with Durga Chew-Bose about what constitutes a ‘difficult woman’ and what inspires the darkness in her work.
