Book Summary

Norris Church Mailer triumphantly returns to the page with this breezy, hilarious novel of discovery and destiny.  Set against the backdrop of 1970s New York City, Cheap Diamonds follows a sweet young girl from the South who risks it all to fulfill her heart's desire.

It all unfolds like a dream--this new world where men have boyfriends, and paintings of soup cans pass for art.  As Cherry's star begins to rise, she finds herself at Max's Kansas City among Andy Warhol's glamorous crowd, dining at Elaine's, and drawing the attention of high society.  But their sophisticated, sometimes shallow ways are often at odds with Cherry's homegrown values.  The line between right and wrong blurs, and the ingenue will discover how far she is willing to stay on top.

Mailer vividly captures a thrilling era when New York City was the burgeoning center of art and fashion, when being young and beautiful was the only currency one needed for survival.  Smartly written, full of humor and hope, Cheap Diamonds reminds us that no matter where we travel in life, we are never very far from home.
