Advance praise for Cheap Diamonds
“Cheap Diamonds is a dazzler. Norris Church Mailer has created a funny, beautiful, and unforgettable character in Cherry, a girl from Arkansas who moves to New York City to become a fashion model. Talk about pluck! Vivid, real, and written with heart and scope, Cheap Diamonds is anything but–it’s the real deal.”
–Adriana Trigiani, author of Lucia, Lucia
“Cheap Diamonds is just plain fun to read. There’s humor, there’s heartbreak, and there’s an answer to a question almost every woman asks at some point in her life: What’s it like to be one of those damn models? The answer will surprise and entertain you.”
–Elizabeth Berg, author of Dream When You’re Feeling Blue
“I love everything about Cheap Diamonds–the vibrantly drawn characters, their brilliantly woven stories, the riveting plot that absorbs interest and sustains suspense every step of the way, and the richly detailed rendering of the ever-fascinating world of high fashion. It is a complete triumph–a masterly and entertaining work.”
–Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of Team of Rivals
