How often do you read a collection of essays? For me, not very often. Well, except for the usual school assignments, which are bound to contain an essay or two. Over the past two weeks or so, I have been reading Bad Feminist and it is great! Bad Feminist was written by Roxane Gay and is a collection … More Book Review: “Bad Feminist: Essays,” by Roxane Gay
