The best new books, music and movies to liven up your weekend



Roxanne Gay is a feminist full of contradictions, but in her book of essays called Bad Feminist, she uses those contradiction to weave funny and insightful arguments on everything from the pains of watching The Help, to bemoaning role models like Bill Cosby who urge African-Americans to act like ideal citizens, despite socioeconomic issues that exacerbate racism and poverty. Whatever the topic, you can bet Gay has a witty and brave response as she takes a sincere look at the way the culture we consume becomes who we are.
