Darius James’s scabrous, unapologetically raunchy, truly hilarious, and deeply scary Negrophobia is a wild-eyed reckoning with the mutating insanity of American racism. A screenplay for the mind, a performance on the page, a work of poetry, a mad mix of genres and styles, a novel in the tradition of William S. Burroughs and Ishmael Reed that is like no other novel, Negrophobia begins with the blonde bombshell Bubbles Brazil succumbing to a voodoo spell and entering the inner darkness of her own shiny being. Every racial stereotype about black people comes to boisterous, blistering life in this outrageous first novel-a grand guignol comic book that draws from both racist kitsch and Afro- American high. Negrophobia: an urban parable: a novel.
Negrophobia: An Urban Parable. 0312093500 (ISBN13: 9780312093501). Darius James' NEGROPHOBIA is a difficult novel to classify (in fact, in some ways it's more like a screenplay to a Surrealist non-existent movie). It's loaded with 'triggers,' and I hope NEGROPHOBIA gives you nightmares. From the beginning, Darius James spins a story shaded in an incandescently perverse poetry, whirling off the very first page, simultaneously biting and slyly working out all those stale paradigms you thought were dead and gone but are sadly still alive and well in o Disclaimer - I personally know the author.

Author and spoken-word artist Darius James's 1992 masterpiece, the William S. Burroughs meets Thomas Pynchon meets Ishmael Reed fever-dream Negrophobia, is a raunchy, raucous, headlong dive into the many faces of American racism. With other works including That's Blaxploitation: Roots of the Baadassssss 'Tude, Voodoo Stew, and Froggy Chocolate's Christmas Eve, James is the cowriter and narrator of the of 2013 film The United States of Hoodoo.
The debut novel by a young writer named Darius James, Negrophobia: An Urban Parable, follows the spoiled white teenager Bubbles Brazil on a journey into her racist subconscious, catalyzed by a voodoo spell cast by her black maid.
Reading Darius James' first novel, NEGRO-PHOBIA, is a real blast as he takes us on cinematic joyride through the nightmarish vision of one Bubbles Brazil, a beautiful adolescent cocktease whose schizophrenic aversion to people of color causes her to hallucinate a virtual reality populated with grotesquely distorted characters like Uncle H. Rap Remus, whose goal is to exterminate the entire white race. James' biting sarcasm and in-your-face poetic intensity reminds one of some strange mix of Ishmael Reed, Terry Southern and Richard Pryor
