Waterstones Says

Collecting Gay's finest non-fiction pieces from the past decade, Opinions tackles issues both weighty - such as state-sponsored violence and women's rights - and intimate - like confronting a co-worker about their perfume - in consistently compelling prose.

Since the publication of the groundbreaking Bad Feminist and Hunger, Roxane Gay has continued to tackle the big issues embroiling society-state-sponsored violence and mass shootings, women's rights post-Dobbs, online disinformation, and the limits of empathy-alongside more individual matters: Can I tell my coworker her perfume makes me sneeze? Is it acceptable to schedule a daily eight a.m. meeting? In her role as a New York Times contributing opinion writer and the publication's "Work Friend" columnist, she reaches millions of readers with her wise voice and sharp insights.

With an introduction in which Gay provides the connective tissues that link her groundbreaking writing, Opinions is a collection of Roxane Gay's best nonfiction pieces from the past ten years, addressing a wide range of topics-politics, the culture wars, civil rights, celebrities, and much more. Offering nuanced analysis that never shies away from difficult topics, this sharp, thought-provoking anthology will delight Gay's devotees and draw new readers to this inimitable talent.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Opinions is a phenomenal collection of [Gay's] writing over the last decade, and she covers it all, from politics, the cult of celebrity, to civil rights and feminism, and her incisive analysis shines in every piece - Glamour UK

Essays, op-eds, and pop-culture pieces from the acclaimed novelist and memoirist . . . [Gay] has a gift for clean, well-ordered prose, and strong feelings on matters of race, gender, and sexuality. Most important, she possesses a fearlessness essential to doing the job right; though she can observe an issue from various angles, she never wrings her hands or delivers milquetoast commentaries . . . she comes to her opinions more out of empathy than ideology . . . Fierce and informed riffs on current events and enduring challenges - Kirkus Reviews

Gay has an ability to blend the personal and political in a way that feels simultaneously gentle and brutal . . . you look at a cultural moment through Gay's eyes and, by the end, you see the world differently - Arwa Mahdawi, Guardian

This is a must-read for not only fans of Gay's work, but for everyone interested in reading intellectual, accessible, and important takes on timely topics - Booklist (Starred Review)
