Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures

Community Room

The enchanting story of a midwestern girl from Wisconsin who escapes a family tragedy and is remade as a movie star during Hollywood’s golden age. Ambitious and richly imagined, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures is as intimate—and as bigger-than-life—as the great films of the golden age of Hollywood. Written with warmth and verve, it confirms Emma Straub’s reputation as one of the most exciting new talents in fiction.
