For over seven years, she worked as the Senior Designer for Los Angeles-based fine jewelry company Tacori. Raden is an experienced jeweler, trained scientist, and well-read historian.

She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and is the author of the New York Times bestseller Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World.

Reviews

Aja Raden's enviable gifts as a storyteller are surpassed only by the depth and breadth of her arcane knowledge. Fascinating and fun, The Truth About Lies could not be more topical. This is a smart, scintillating, tour de force of a book--and that's no lie.
--Greg Olear, author of Dirty Rubles, Fathermucker, and Totally Killer

Enjoyably witty . . . . Chock-full of quirky anecdotes, this is a fun romp through the tricky world of deception.
--Publishers Weekly
