Karen Karbo

Karen Karbo is an American novelist, non-fiction writer and journalist.

Karbo's three comic novels, ''Trespassers Welcome Here'' (1990), ''The Diamond Lane'' (1993), and ''Motherhood Made a Man Out of Me'' (2001), were each named ''New York Times'' Notable Books. She may be best known for her "Kick Ass Women" series (2007–13)—biographical self-help guidebooks on Katharine Hepburn Coco Chanel, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Julia Child. Her other non-fiction works are ''Generation Ex: Tales From The Second Wives Club'' (2001), ''The Stuff of Life: A Daughter's Memoir'' (2004), ''In Praise of Difficult Women'' (2018), and ''Yeah, No. Not Happening'' (2020). She has also written the three-book Minerva Clark children's mystery series (2005–7).

Karbo has received an Oregon Book Award and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in fiction, among other recognition. She has written essays, articles and reviews for ''Elle'', ''Esquire'', ''The New York Times'', ''O'', ''Outside'', ''Salon.com'', ''Vogue'', and other magazines. ''New York Times'' critic Janet Burroway described her books as "praised for their laugh-aloud, zinging, elbow-in-the-side wit," and her magazine work as in the tradition of participatory journalism writers such as George Plimpton or Bob Shacochis. Karbo lives in the south of France after previously residing in Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles. Provided by Wikipedia
