Product description

Review

An Untamed State is breathless, artful, disturbing and original. I won’t ever forget it. (Meg Wolitzer, author of The Interestings)

Finished @rgay’s gripping and brilliant novel An Untamed State last night. It resists 140-character analysis, but wow. (John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars Twitter)

Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down. An Untamed State is a novel of hope intermingled with fear, a book about possibilities mixed with horror and despair. It is written at a pace that will match your racing. (Edwidge Danticat)

Roxane Gay’s riveting debut, An Untamed State, captivates from its opening sentence and doesn’t let go . . . So let this be the year of Roxane Gay: You’ll tear through An Untamed State, but ponder it for long after. (Time Magazine)

I read An Untamed State in one sitting – I realize that it's absolutely cliche to say "I couldn't put it down" but from the other reviews I've seen of the book, I can see that I'm not alone in that sentiment. (Jessica Valenti Guardian)

Gay's novel puts a face, a name and especially a voice to the rampant global violence against women. (Los Angeles Times)

A fairy tale . . . its complex and fragile moral arrived at through great pain and high cost. . . . Perhaps Haiti, too, is a beautiful princess, well-versed in the vagaries of men, still searching for a happily ever after. (New York Times Book Review)

A smart, searing novel. (Washington Post)

Book Description

Mirielle Duval Jameson’s fairy tale life is shattered when, during a visit to Haiti with her American husband and their child, she is kidnapped. Her father, a self-made millionaire, refuses to pay the ransom; and so Mirielle's captors take their revenge - pushing her beyond what she previously thought possible to endure. An Untamed State is a stunning achievement: a compelling, unflinching, deeply moving and unmissable novel.
