Product description

Review

An Untamed State is breathless, artful, disturbing and original. I won t ever forget it.

Finished @rgay s gripping and brilliant novel An Untamed State last night. It resists 140-character analysis, but wow. - Twitter

Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down. An Untamed State is a novel of hope intermingled with fear, a book about possibilities mixed with horror and despair. It is written at a pace that will match your racing.

Roxane Gay s riveting debut, An Untamed State, captivates from its opening sentence and doesn t let go . . . So let this be the year of Roxane Gay: You ll tear through An Untamed State, but ponder it for long after. - Time Magazine

I read An Untamed State in one sitting I realize that it's absolutely cliche to say "I couldn't put it down" but from the other reviews I've seen of the book, I can see that I'm not alone in that sentiment. - Guardian

Gay's novel puts a face, a name and especially a voice to the rampant global violence against women. - Los Angeles Times

A fairy tale . . . its complex and fragile moral arrived at through great pain and high cost. . . . Perhaps Haiti, too, is a beautiful princess, well-versed in the vagaries of men, still searching for a happily ever after. - New York Times Book Review

A smart, searing novel. - Washington Po --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
