If you’re participating in the 2016 Read Harder Challenge and need a book for task #3, check out this week’s staff pick Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxanne Gay. Our staffer described it as funny and intelligent with a great variety. Covering politics, criticism and feminism readers can skip around to the topic of their choice.
“In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.” —Amazon
