African American Women Writers

Roxanne Gay's character-driven literary fiction and her thought-provoking nonfiction are amusing and brutally direct in addressing prejudice, injustice, and greed. In her fiction, Gay unites psychological nuance with physical violence in an unusual blend of suspense and social commentary that is as bleak and sobering as it is trenchant in its examination of family, women, and class. Gay's nonfiction essay collections are equally as layered in their plainspoken exploration of popular culture, the media, and social perceptions. (NoveList)
