book

Anything can happen on Heliotrope Boulevard. In Escape from Beckyville: Tales of Race, Hair and Rage, go inside a futuristic Los Angeles where female wraiths prey on black women for their hair, southern maids possess superpowers and black women live in fear of being stopped by the Rage Patrol. Ten dysfunctional divas – all named Jones – struggle to survive among the chaos, as they deal with their own insecurities and their relationship to "Becky." In these ten twisted and provocative tales, Nicole D. Sconiers tackles issues of race, hair and rage in witty, haunting and terrifying ways.



Praise for Nicole D. Sconiers

"With sharp, strong strokes, Nicole Sconiers creates a surreal and all-too-real world in which a black woman can find herself trapped in a white body, get busted for anger or, if she feels like it, rent a programmable white dude. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny and often both, these are stories from a fresh new writer to watch. This Becky is most impressed!
— Kit Reed, author of Weird Women, Wired Women and Thinner Than Thou

"Nicole Sconiers' voice and vision lead, in these stories, to exciting, dangerous, adventurous, emotionally honest and true places, via her spunky and very alive characters. A writer who has come into her own."
— Alma Luz Villanueva, author of The Ultraviolet Sky, winner of the American Book Award.
