Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist, Reading Books by Women (elokuu 2016)
Bad Feminist, Feminist Theory (tammikuu 2015)


Roxane Gay is brilliant, readable and important in the struggles for women and blacks and I whipped through her book, yet I grew weary and dejected just as she did telling her tragic story. Her writing does spur one on even if there is a swathe of hopelessness about her recovering from the gang rape suffered at twelve. Yet I kept reading, fascinated by the depth of her confessions and laying bare of her pain and loneliness, and her self-understanding. It's what we're encouraged to do in memoir but how difficult it is.

"I do not want pity or appreciation or advice. I am not brave or heroic. I am not strong. I am not special. I am one woman who has experienced something countless women have experienced. I am a victim who survived."

This was a tough read emotionally - I had to take breaks. But this book is important. Everyone should read it, if they can handle it.

Extremely tough read but necessary. I recommend reading something less intense alongside it. But you should definitely read it.

Better than most books out there, but my least favorite of the three Roxane Gay books I've read. Still, it's an easy read and there are a couple gems nestled in there.
