Overview

"Confessions of a Disco Queen...30 some years ago"
Marries Fashion with Passion

Set in the tumultuous time of the 1970s, "Confessions of a Disco Queen...30 some years ago" dares to ask provocative questions about race, culture, and the human need to connect.

Sensual and heart breaking in turns, author Veronica Page takes readers through the true story of her desire to succeed in the fashion industry amid the hot box of racial struggle in New York City. Told in the tune of disco against the sweeping backdrop of elaborate fashion shows, "Confessions of a Disco Queen...30 some years ago" immerses the reader in the day to day hardships of living as a black woman in a world that balks at both her gender and race.

Page weaves narrative with her own published newspaper articles, lush fashion descriptions with steamy romance, and cruel reality with laugh out loud honesty to create a novel that brims over with life.
