“Roxane Gay is so great at weaving the intimate and personal with what is most bewildering and upsetting at this moment in culture. She is always looking, always thinking, always passionate, always careful, always right there.” — Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be? A New York Times Bestseller Best Book of the Year: NPR • Boston Globe • Newsweek • Time Out New York • Oprah.com • Miami Herald • Book Riot • Buzz Feed • Globe and Mail (Toronto) • The Root • Shelf Awareness A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched cultural observers of her generation In these funny and insightful essays, 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. Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better, coming from one of our most interesting and important cultural critics.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist: a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself. “I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe. I buried the girl I was because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. . . . I was trapped in my body, one that I barely recognized or understood, but at least I was safe.” In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr blog, Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In Hunger, she explores her past—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers along on her journey to understand and ultimately save herself. With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and power that have made her one of the most admired writers of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to learn to take care of yourself: how to feed your hungers for delicious and satisfying food, a smaller and safer body, and a body that can love and be loved—in a time when the bigger you are, the smaller your world becomes.

"Jag är en dålig feminist, för jag vill inte bli satt på en feministpiedestal. Folk som sätts på piedestaler förväntas posera perfekt. Sedan puttar man ner dem när de klantar till det. Jag klantar till det hela tiden. Betrakta mig som redan nerputtad." I sin hyllade essäsamling skriver Roxane Gay om allt från Alfapet, fat camps, våldtäkter, Bill Cosby, Hungerspelen och Femtio nyanser av honom, till varför man gillar hiphop fast man vet att texterna är sexistiska. Det handlar om kön, politik, etnicitet och sex. Det är sylvasst, roligt, gravallvarligt, beläst och lättsamt, strängt och generöst, allt på samma gång, och alltihop utgår från hennes egen definition av feminism: bad feminism. För alla oss som kanske inte är perfekta, men som ändå vill kalla oss feminister. Bad Feminist är en bok som hittills saknats på svenska: utan ängslighet, utan att snegla på andra eller dissa någon som inte är feminist på "rätt" sätt. Roxane Gay är en av dagens mest spännande skribenter, och hon skriver precis vad hon vill.
