Product description

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 judge 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.
