What's that? Clean out my desk? Ok, ok I'll write about something relevant.
I can't think of anything better to write about today than the sale of Bad Feminist. This book has been getting lots of advance praise and TIME magazine firmly supports this being the year of Roxane Gay (her debut novel, An Untamed State, came out this year too).
Bad Feminist is a collection of essays that are at times funny, at times heartbreaking, and always insightful. Gay discusses Scrabble, race, The Hunger Games, love, Green Girl...as Sheila Heti says, she is "great at weaving the intimate and personal with what is most bewildering and upsetting at this moment in culture."
I most HIGHLY recommend getting yourself a copy and jumping into Roxane's world. Then follow her on Twitter cause she is one smart and entertaining lady.
