Roxane Gay: On having an opinion

From The Weekend , 9:08 am on 6 January 2024

There's research showing it's a bit of a national trait to be agreeable in New Zealand, which doesn't work in our favour when it comes to having difficult conversations. 

Professor, cultural commentator and writer Roxane Gay no stranger to having an opinion. 

Widely known as the bestselling author of 'Bad Feminist' and the memoir 'Hunger', she's also an opinion writer for The Guardian, The New York Times and Harper's. 

Roxane joins Susana to discuss her latest book Opinions which brings together a decade of opinion writing into one collection.
