In a good way, the way impressive and newly discovered writers should humble me. Check out her list of published works, it's insane! She's an amazing and prolific writer, publishes like a maniac, edits/ contributes to several 'zines, and is apparently even getting her PhD on top of all this. I discovered Roxane via kill author (where I first read her prose) and PANK (of which she is associate editor).
I love the literary movement that is translating itself to the internet, and the ability to discover striking contemporary writers like Ms. Gay.
