Stop in to Barnes & Noble in Royal Oak on November 14th at 7:00 pm and meet Emma Straub, author of Laura Lamont's Life In Pictures.


(from Barnes & Noble Review)


Emma Straub's much-anticipated first novel, Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures, is a shadow play about the Golden Age of Hollywood, its flickering images made hazy by time and distance. An epigraph neatly clarifies Straub's approach to her subject: she reprints the famous line from the beginning of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon (still the best of all Hollywood novels, even if it remained only half finished at the time of Fitzgerald's death in 1940) claiming that Hollywood can be understood, "but only dimly and in flashes."
