From the Publisher
"Karen Karbo is a very funny writer — from near slapstick to wry wit. Amazing." —The New York Times
Praise for The Diamond Lane:
"A flawless, page-turning story . . . this is a tale to treasure."
"A wonderfully comic novel about savvy Hollywood outsiders trying to get in . . . not only is the plot ingenious, but the writing remains deft all the way through."
—The New York Times
"It is a testament to Karbo’s skill at high comedy that the ending of this book — a funeral rather than a wedding — leaves you smiling."
—The New Yorker
"This astringent, humorous novel tackles two subjects ripe for satire: the Hollywood movie industry and marriage — both notoriously fickle institutions requiring blind hope to sustain life."
—the Los Angeles Times
"This kind of novel is a devil to pull off . . . and Ms. Karbo has done her job brilliantly."
—The New York Times Book Review
