Product description


"Timely. . . . It is a critical work that makes this much clear: The violations #MeToo rages against can and do damage people for a lifetime."--The Globe and Mail

"This is a devastating book, heartbreaking in how familiar and relatable each story is--yet there's power and solidarity in it, too."--Shondaland

"Not That Bad is essential reading."--Refinery29

"A timely, necessary anthology."--PureWow

"It's hard to imagine a more fitting editor for a collection like this... everyone should read it."--Brooklyn Rail

"A profoundly personal anthology."--Harper's Bazaar

"The lauded social critic and provocateur curates a diverse and unvarnished collection of personal essays reckoning with the experiences and systemic dysfunction that produced #MeToo."--O: The Oprah Magazine

"From the author of Bad Feminist and Hunger (drop everything if you haven't read this) comes a collection of first-person essays about rape, assault and sexual harassment. It couldn't be more timely. Gay's introduction moved me to tears, as did many of the pieces contributed by household names--Gabrielle Union, Ally Sheedy--but accounts from "regular" women moved me even more. Perhaps that's the lesson we're meant to take away from Not that Bad: we're all "regular." Shocking as they are, many of these stories will be familiar to us all--and we all deserve better."--Elisabeth Egan, "The 17 Best Books to Read this Summer," Glamour

"Critical reading."
--Paste Magazine, "The Best Nonfiction Books of 2018"

Book Description

Edited and with an introduction by Roxane Gay, the New York Times bestselling and deeply beloved author of Bad Feminist and Hunger, this anthology of first-person essays read by all 30 contributors, including Gabrielle Union, Ally Sheedy and Lyz Lenz, tackles rape, assault and harassment head-on.
