Negrophobia, with its outrageous and electrifying mix of screenplay, poetry, and performance piece on paper, pushes the conventional territory of the novel to its outer, outer limits. Raunchy and rambunctious, Darius James turns words into flesh and flesh into monstrous forms. His writing is as intoxicating as the works of William Burroughs and Ishmael Reed. Under the earthshattering effects of a voodoo spell, blond teenage sex-bomb Bubbles Brazil is plunged into a startling realm of grotesque racist visions. Horrific figures populate this parallel world wherein the demagogic Uncle H. Rap Remus calls for the instant extermination of the white race by spontaneous combustion and various citizens of Harlem are found floating in a haunting underwater dreamscape. In Negrophobia worlds collapse and re-form, people explode into strange and unnatural beings from conga-drumming Muslims and ill-tempered young Negroes with numbers instead of names to Muppet-like crack-heads and a visionary extraterrestrial who never combs his hair. By the final scene, Bubbles herself has been transformed after the strangest trip a girl can have.
