May 8, 2020: I haven’t read Emma Straub’s 2012 novel, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, but I believe she wrote it just for me: it’s about a golden age of Hollywood actress, and it was inspired by Jennifer Jones’s obituary. Meanwhile, I have definitely read Emma’s swell new novel, All Adults Here, which I reviewed for Shelf Awareness. Shelf also let me interview Emma–the piece runs today–and she said lots of nifty things that you should consider reading here.
