Niya White is a middle-age writer currently realizing her teenage dreams of being an author in wide publication.
She is currently surviving the modern-day dystopia known as the south side of Chicago.
Who are you, and why should I read you?
Well, I'm Niya White--author, Chicagoan, and literary junkie extraordinaire! As for why you should read me--a more important question is, why not?
What can we expect from this impromptu conversation with yourself?
Years ago, I once read an interview in some nameless music magazine (probably NME) in which two guys were auditioning to be apart of Marilyn Manson's band. As part of the auditioning process, they were asked to fill out a questionnaire (!) Both guys got bored with it fairly quickly--or maybe they figured out the ironic joke. One guy answered the questions with answers that had nothing to do with the questions, the other answered every question with the words "dish-washing liquid". I will try not to do that here.
An excellent introduction to Niya White, a Chicago author that challenges what it means to be living in the twenty-first century, this trio of short stories feature women surviving the greatest horror: living on the verge of madness. From small town life, to life as a refugee--you are drawn into worlds not unlike your own.
