This item is from the collection originally formed over a 50 year period by Dr. Sam Loebenstein of Kansas City, MO and continued by his grandson, Michael J. Gerstley, of San Jose, CA. Karen Karbo's first novel, Trespassers Welcome Here, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and a Village Voice Top Ten Book of the Year. Her other two adult novels, The Diamond Lane and Motherhood Made a Man Out of Me, were also named New York Times Notable Books. Karbo's 2004 memoir, The Stuff of Life, about the last year she spent with her father before his death, was an NYT Notable Book, a People Magazine Critics' Choice, a Books for a Better Life Award finalist, and a winner of the Oregon Book Award for Creative Non-fiction. Her short stories, essays, articles and reviews have appeared in Elle, Vogue, Esquire, Outside, O, More, The New Republic, The New York Times, salon.com and other magazines. She is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Fiction, and a winner of the General Electric Younger Writer Award. Karbo is most well known for her best-selling Kick Ass Women series, the most recent of which is How Georgia Became O'Keeffe, published in 2011. How to Hepburn, published in 2007, was hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as "an exuberant celebration of a great original"; #1 ebook best-seller The Gospel According to Coco Chanel appeared in 2009. Next up: Julia Child Rules, which will appear in May 2013. In addition, Karbo penned three books in the Minerva Clark mystery series for children: Minerva Clark Gets A Clue, Minerva Clark Goes to the Dogs, and Minerva Clark Gives Up the Ghost. Karen grew up in Los Angeles, California and lives in Portland, Oregon where she continues to kick ass. Amazing Facts 1. I was born in Detroit but moved to California when I was one year old. I have no memory of Detroit. Am I a Michigander or a Californian? My father designed the hood ornament for the Lincoln Continental, still in use today. He designed toys for Mattel in the 60s. I was an unofficial toy tester-outer. 2. The ranch-style tract house I grew up in was on the border of Whittier and La Habra, also the border of Los Angeles Country and Orange County. On one side of the house there were sidewalks but no street lights, on the other side there were street lights but no sidewalks. I went to public schools. 3. I skipped first grade. In second grade I wrote my first novel, entitled “What Next?” about five people who don’t like each other and get stuck in an elevator. It was ten pages long. I still think this is a great idea for a novel. 4. When I was a senior in high school I was set up on a date with Jay North, a.k.a. Dennis the Menace. He was a much older man, and wore loafers of maroon patent leather. That year, I was also voted “Most *&%#&$” in the senior class. I’m still not sure what that means. 5. On my high school aptitude test it was revealed that my perfect job was either a) test pilot or b) architect. I was least suited for anything in the helping professions. Naturally, at college (USC) I decided to become a physical therapist. I changed my mind the last semester of my senior year. I went to film school instead. My poor father. 6. I was in Paris the day Elvis died. The headline in Le Monde was “Elvis Est Mort.” 7. Jobs I’ve held, with varying degrees of success: child model dog groomer papergirl sailboat varnisher counter person (Chow House, Knott’s Berry Farm) housekeeper (Newport Beach Marriott) art house movie theater ticket taker and popcorn seller movie reviewer (The Oregonian) author 8. I am a PADI-certified shark handler, trained in the Bahamas by an Australian named Derek. Shark lose teeth whenever they feed. It is not uncommon to find them on the beach. I own a shark tooth that came from a 12’ black-tip reef shark, which caught as it fell from his mouth. We were in 60’ of water. He was eating a piece of red snapper. I am more afraid of roller coasters than sharks. 9. My favorite novel is “Lolita.” It gets funnier every time I reread it. 10. I have been around the world.
