Nickels A Tale of Dissociation by Christine Stark

  Nickels: A Tale of Dissociation By Christine Stark www.ChristineStark.com with an introduction by Anya Achtenberg Nickels follows a biracial girl named Little Miss So and So from age 4 into adulthood. Told in a series of prose poems, Nickels’ lyrical and inventive language conveys the dissociative states born of a world formed by persistent and brutal incest and homophobia. The dissociative states enable the child’s survival and, ultimately, the adult’s healing. The story is both heartbreaking and triumphant. Nickels is the groundbreaking debut of Minneapolis-area author and artist Christine Stark.   “Christine Stark has crafted a language and a diction commensurate with the shredding of consciousness that is a consequence of childhood sexual abuse. She brings a wholly original voice in a riveting novel of desperation and love. Nickels is narrated by Miss So and So, as her mother names her, from age 4 to 26, a character so compelling I never wanted to stop hearing from her. She names herself crazy girl, but the reader sees a different truth: there’s humor and cunning and ferocious love alive in those who survive. Stark enables the reader to inhabit the intricacy and chaos of this potent inner landscape, and we have not seen this before. Every sentence vibrates with a terrible beauty. Every sentence brings the news. ---Patricia Weaver Francisco, author of Telling: A Memoir of Rape and Recovery “To be taken into the mind of a child can be … [Read more...]
