BookStalked: Roxane Gay
Roxane Gay is an internet force. Rarely a day goes by when I don’t see people retweeting, sharing and mentioning her works. Roxane’s output is staggering, and I’m constantly impressed by how she can expound brilliantly on everything from politics to Step Up: Revolution. Her first book, Ayitia, a collection of works about the the Haitian diaspora experience, was recently published by Artistically Declined Press. Roxane also teaches at Eastern Illinois University and holds down editorships PANK, The Rumpus, and Bluestem. Whew. Despite her busy sched, Roxane was kind enough to share a few reading tales, which are unsurprisingly awesome. Read on to for a Twilight recap event, salvation from a Dostoyevsky fan, and the magic of Scott McClanahan.
