Description - The Diviners by Rick Moody

Scores of film-business wannabes are connected to a major miniseries, among them: Vanessa Meandro, hot-tempered head of an indie film company; her harried and varied staff; a Sikh cab driver; a bi-polar bicycle messenger; the Vanderbilt girls; a thriller writer who gives Botox parties; a CEO of network programming whose daughter is Vanessa's donut gofer; and a supreme court justice who wants to write the script. The Diviners is a cautionary tale about pointless ambition; a richly detailed look at the interlocking worlds of money, politics, addiction, sex, work, and family in modern America; and a masterpiece of comedy.
