Difficult Women

Typography Book

Award-winning author and powerhouse talent Roxane Gay burst onto the scene with An Untamed State and the New York Times best-selling essay collection Bad Feminist (Harper Perennial). Gay returns with Difficult Women, a collection of stories of rare force and beauty, of hardscrabble lives, passionate loves, and quirky and vexed human connection.

This typography book shows a collection for short stories off Roman Gay’s novel “Difficult Women”. Roses are the guides through the book which are mirroring the content of each chapter and how they are matching to the overall picture.
