Synopsis: Nickels follows a biracial girl named Little Miss So and So, from age 4-½ into adulthood. Told in a series of vignettes, 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/artist Christine Stark
