Colors Insulting to Nature by Cintra Wilson
In Colors Insulting to Nature, Liza Normal is a teenager whose mother fuels her obsession with becoming a famous star. Although lacking in talent, she believes that it can be obtained just by wanting it badly enough. As Liza's self-delusions run headlong into a contrary reality, she bounces through failed relationships and various countercultures that live outside the Hollywood dream. It's a journey of self-discovery in a world full of sex, drugs, and acting out in any form to get attention for a fictionalized self-realization. Cintra Wilson, the acerbic entertainment columnist for Salon.com, skewers the world of celebrity with her blistering satire. Colors Insulting to Nature has received mostly positive reviews with the Rocky Mountain News saying, "This novel is smart and funny, and Wilson has imbued it with an unselfconscious multiculturalism and a verve that few writers can match."
