In Difficult Women, Roxanne Gay brings to life a chorus of complex women rendered with painstaking specificity and heart. Gay’s powerhouse collection of short stories examines themes of power, privilege, love, marriage and poverty with Gay’s signature acuity, wit and intersectionality. A haunting and often humorous portrayal of the societal pressures faced by the modern American woman, Difficult Women is sure to remind Book Club readers of the vibrant (anti) heroines seen onstage in Vanity Fair.
