Additional Information

One of today’s most astute cultural critics, Roxane Gay is the author of New York Times best-seller Bad Feminist, the novel An Untamed State, and the short story collections Difficult Women and Ayiti. She has written for the New York Times, Time, The Nation, and Salon, and her work has been included in several anthologies. Raw and beautifully written, Gay’s most recent book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, is a remarkable work about pain, healing, strength, and coming to terms with oneself and one’s body.

A book signing follows the reading.

Readings are followed by discussion with author and UCLA professor Mona Simpson, who organizes this series.

Supported in part by the UCLA Department of English and the Friends of English.
