Having sold her first screenplay at the age of 21, Liza Lutz quit college to make it big in Hollywood, only to spend the next ten years rewriting the script! During that time she supported herself via menial jobs, including a two-year stint at a San Francisco private investigation firm, which inspired her to write her first novel, THE SPELLMAN FILES.
"Addictively entertaining." -- "Glamour" "A fun and irreverent debut."-- "Entertainment Weekly" "Truly the funniest book I've read in years."-- Susan Elizabeth Phillips "Isabel Spellman...the love child of Dirty Harry and Harriet the Spy." -- "People" "Irresistible.... Starts out funny and does not let up." -- "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" "Fast-paced, irreverent, and very funny, "The Spellman Files" is like "Harriet the Spy" for grown-ups."-- Curtis Sittenfeld, author of "The Man of My Dreams" and "Prep" "She's part Bridget Jones, part Columbo. Lisa Lutz's resilient P.I. Isabel Spellman emerges as a thoroughly unusual heroine in her delightful, droll debut novel." -- "USA Today" "A spirited, funny debut...a rush of humor and chaos...casual, swift, and hip...A fresh story that works real issues through an offbeat premise."-- "Kirkus Reviews" (starred review) "Hilarious. My enjoyment of "The Spellman Files" was only slightly undercut by my irritation that I hadn't written it myself. The funniest book I've read in years!"-- Lauren Weisberger, author of "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Everyone Worth Knowing" ""The Spellman Files" is hilarious, outrageous, and hip. Izzy Spellman, P.I., is a total original, with a voice so fresh and real, you want more, more, more. At long last, we know what Nancy Drew would have been like had she come from a family of lovable crackpots. Lisa Lutz has created a delicious comedy with skill and truth. I loved it."-- Adriana Trigiani, author of "Lucia, Lucia" and "Big Stone Gap"
