Intermission is the story of four former girl group members, who reluctantly consider reuniting for a twentieth anniversary tour, despite vows never to speak again. The Diamonds were a popular multiracial girl group in the 1990’s. Their sisterhood was as tight as their harmonies, but they let drugs, men and money turn their melodies flat. They disbanded just as they were on the verge of mega-success. Each has their own memory of who did what to whom, and that memory has governed their life decisions. The truth is somewhere in between, and Intermission is the story of how they get to that truth.  


Dixon (Down Home Blues, 2016) gives her characters distinctive voices, exploring their inner lives and motivations, and her conversational style gives readers a front-row seat to the Diamonds’ sparkling reunion. Fans of Kimberla Lawson Roby and ReShonda Tate Billingsley will  be enthralled.        


If you were a fan of girl music groups from the 1990s, you’ll love this story about the fictional girl group the Diamonds.

Phyllis R. Dixon’s Intermission is a moving reminder that fame, and fortune never guarantees “happily ever after.” In the end, we cheer these four women as they find their ways back to each other, and to new dreams that include more than great songs.
