With "Neurotica," Emerging Author Sets Brand New Benchmark For Urban Erotica

Share Article

"Neurotica: An honest examination into urban sexual relations" is a collection of 24 variegated shorts that wear a jacket of verisimilitude not found in the stale genres to date. Rather than jumping on the black erotica/urban lit bandwagon, momowilly departs from the trite and contrived with a deliciously realistic portrayal of sexual situations in the urban landscape responsibly. With the street-wise vernacular reminiscent of Sista Souljah and the sex appeal of Zane, momowilly has penned a relevant urban classic.

Neurotica: An honest examination into urban sexual relations

"Neurotica: An honest examination into urban sexual relations" (Lulu Publishing, $12.96) marks the auspicious debut of author Monique Williams a/k/a momowilly.

A wizened voice culled from the urban aesthetic, Neurotica speaks to life with inspired imagination, arching range and stark candor. Not to mention prurience the likes of which we haven’t seen since the hey-day of Iceberg Slim.

The book is in three sections, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. The Good, characterized in the main by wry, upbeat humor is a ribald romp that gives us the chance to snicker, chuckle and laugh out loud at ourselves and each other. The Bad casts an unsparing bedroom light on those who know what’s right in life, but still insist on doing wrong. The Ugly shows just how readily the worst can be drawn out in all of us.

A popular read to be shared between friends and lovers alike, "Neurotica" gets down to what old-schoolers call the nitty-gritty. And, from first tale to last, stays there. For good measure, rather than keeping it strictly for the ladies, momowilly kicks it from a male perspective as well and, indeed, places neither gender on a pedestal. The result is a remarkably well-rounded, vastly informed tour de force.

“From the urbanity to the urbane and crossing rich ground in between, what we have with momowilly’s 'Neurotica' is a profound departure from and a strong improvement on today’s field of soft-core tease black fiction. If you’re going to go erotic, why half-step? Neurotica not only goes all the way, but, as the saying goes, takes you there. And brings you back. With quite an experience to show for it.”
