Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"One of the many good qualities of Rick Moody's THE DIVINERS is that he has written a Hollywood novel that separates the meaning of Hollywood from that of Los Angeles, a real city erased by the mythology created by a million hours of movies and television shows set there arbitrarily."

Michael Tolkin, Bookforum, December/January 2006

Review:

"As a whole the novel fits together, and it is coruscating enough that you make allowances for the bits that don't. Moody takes so many risks, and his prose is so exuberant, that there are inevitable misfirings. He gets away with this, too."

Martyn Bedford, Literary Review, February 2006

Book Description: Back Bay Books, 2007. Soft Cover. Book Condition: New. In his first novel in seven years, Rick Moody gives us a look at contemporary America, from coast to coast. In the month after Election Day 2000, scores of movie-business strivers are focused on one goal: getting in on an elusive production that seems sure to be the Next Best Thing. It is an epic about dowsers, those miracle workers who bring water to perpetually thirsty (and hungry and love-starved) humankind. The movie - or TV miniseries, as it eventually becomes - opens with Huns sweeping through Mongolia and closes with a Mormon diviner finding water in the Las Vegas desert. A rumor-driven industry is sure that it will be the please-everyone, multigenerational, multiethnic hit of all their dreams." "Among the wannabes in pursuit of this ephemeral project: Vanessa Meandro, hot-tempered head of Means of Production, a hip New York indie film company; her harried and varied staff, including a Sikh cabdriver promoted to the office of "theory and practice of TV" and the daughter of an LA media big shot, who is hired to fetch Vanessa's Krispy Kremes and more; a bipolar bicycle messenger who makes a fateful misdelivery; two celebrity publicists, the Vanderbilt girls; a thriller writer who gives Botox parties; a word man who coined the phrase "inspired by a true story"; and a Supreme Court justice who wants to write the script. A few real artists surface in the course of Moody's tale, and real emotion will eventually blossom for most of Vanessa's staff at Means of Production - even for Vanessa herself." The Diviners is a look at the interlocking worlds of entertainment, money, politics, addiction, sex, work, and family in modern America. Rick Moody delivers a cautionary tale about vanity, ambition, and life's unlikely paths. Bookseller Inventory # 001447
