Difficult Women

by Roxane Gay

Length: 260 pages

Published: January 3rd 2017 by Grove Press
Medium of Consumption: eBook

The Rundown:

Difficult Women is a hard hitting collection of short stories. Each one giving a glimpse of different women’s lives, and often dealing with heavy issues and scenarios.

What I Thought:

I loved this book. Each story was so engrossing and every time I picked it up I couldn’t stop reading. This book definitely deals with a lot of different trigger content, so if you are at all uncomfortable with topics such as molestation or abuse I do not recommend it. These stories are so raw with emotion and well written that even if you do feel uncomfortable, just skip to the next story. Also guys: do not let the title or content fool you.  This isn’t a โ€œfeel good Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul book.โ€  Definitely well worth the read for any sex.  Will definitely be picking up another Roxane Gay book in the future.

5/5 Stars
