The ever-excellent Roxane Gay has compiled a necessarily incomplete list of writers of color that I will be drawing on -- for my own reading enjoyment, for recommendations, and for Publicly Complex -- for years to come. There are more names in the comment section.

Modestly, Roxane didn't put herself on the list, but I recommend her fiction and essays highly. (I've also been extra-impressed by her calm, dignified and firm responses to online ignorance and bile.) If you're looking for something to read in August ...
