Ayiti is Roxane Gay’s debut collection, originally published by a small press (Artistically Declined Press, 2011). We will be reissuing this collection as a Grove Press paperback and making it widely available for the first time. We will also be including new stories.

Gay’s Difficult Women was a national bestseller, an Indie Next Selection, a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, and one of Elle Magazine’s “13 Best New Books”

Gay’s essay collection Bad Feminist and her memoir Hunger were New York Times bestsellers.

Gay has a huge presence on Twitter with over 288k followers; she is also a widely read cultural critic both online and in print, regularly appearing in the opinion pages of the New York Times and magazines and newspapers worldwide.

An Untamed State was a finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Fiction, among other awards.

Roxane Gay is a recipient of the PEN Center USA Freedom to Write Award, among other honors.
