Casting Laura Lamont's Life In Pictures by Emma Straub

I can't wait to pick up a copy of Emma Straub's novel, Laura Lamont's Life In Pictures, at the author's Skylight Books reading this Wednesday. In the meantime, I couldn't resist playing casting agent for the title character, a fictional Academy Award winning movie star. Just reading the book's synopsis on Goodreads (which calls to mind everyone from Lauren Bacall to Marilyn Monroe) had me imagining a young Elizabeth Taylor (circa BUtterfield 8) in the role... but since that's obviously out of the question, how about Michelle Williams? And the director: Sofia Coppola, perhaps? Share your casting picks in the comments. --Kim
