Roxane Gay reads and discusses Difficult Women with Saeed Jones of BuzzFeed at 92Y [12JAN17]

“Everything caters to the male gaze and I just, I’m not interested in that as a writer, and so, I want to write stories where women are centered, even if their stories exist, in part, because of something that has happened with a man.”

Roxane Gay

I have a deep, abiding love and respect for Roxane Gay. I would follow her to Reno without hesitation, asking only one (wholly important) question, “lipstick or boots?” 

 I see her. And I know that she sees me.

Eco once wrote that “books always speak of other books, and every story tells a story that has already been told”.
“I am a philosopher,” he was quoted as saying. “I write novels only on the weekends.”
