“Deathbed Dimes’ humorous and heartwarming urgency will have you turning pages and up all night rooting for the novel’s neurotic narrator. Readers of Naomi Zener’s entertaining and hilarious debut will lose themselves in the fascinating world, and recognize themselves in the novel’s honest and revealing portrayal of one woman’s desperate search for a place in the world.”

Julia Fierroauthor of Cutting Teeth: A Novel

“Deathbed Dimes is a funny, acerbic, and raucous read written by someone who clearly knows the world she’s so vividly created.”

Terry Fallisauthor of Best Laid Plans

“I absolutely loved the humor in Deathbed Dimes. The characters jumped off the page – so fun and suspenseful, I wanted to be in the story. Bravo!”
