Inhaltsangabe zu „High Dive“ von Cynthia Tyler

What would you do if you lost a high-paying job, your lover, your home, and even your tricked-out status ride all at once? That's exactly what happens to 29-year-old Sara Wing, player in the subprime mortgage lending industry, whose life is turned inside out in the space of forty-eight hours when the Southern California housing bubble bursts and she goes from a power position to pool cleaner. Along the way Sara meets and is challenged by a cast of characters from Los Angeles' diverse community of haves and have-nots. Her experiences capture the invisible, ever-shifting boundary between hope and despair. Peppered with memorable personalities--gay street artists Ritchie and Henry, ill-tempered bad-asses Puff and Super Dave, and an older, wealthy widow who wants to "take care" of Sara--the novel is at once funny, realistic, and compassionate. There is depth and beauty to this contemporary tale of setbacks, self-discovery, and triumph, as Sara Wing, former moneymaker and current pool peon, begins painting a new life--and what a colorful life it is!
