A vivacious, hilarious, and genuinely universal new voice bursts onto the scene with Tia Williams's fiction debut about love, work, and friendship.

Billie Burke is a twenty-six-year-old beauty editor at the world's leading fashion magazine, Du Jour. A black woman in a traditionally white industry, Billie has worked hard to rise to the frothy top of her trade, where paying tribute to the perfect pink lip gloss is serious business. But the crazy days and long nights are about to pay off, as Billie finds herself poised to make a plum career move.

Enter Jay Lane, a charismatic performance artist from the projects of Fort Greene, Brooklyn, a man who has seen a darker half of the world than suburban-born Billie. When the two meet, the chemistry is instant and a side of Billie is awakened that she didn't know existed. But as well matched as they are, Jay and Billie come from different worlds, and the closer they become, the more their past lives threaten to tear them apart.

The Accidental Diva is an irresistible read that marks the debut of a major new voice in women's fiction.
