Of course, Roxanne Gay is known for Bad Feminist, but she also writes fiction, too! From Goodreads: "An assured debut about a woman kidnapped for ransom, her captivity as her father refuses to pay and her husband fights for her release over thirteen days, and her struggle to come to terms with the ordeal in its aftermath."
