Emma Straub on my reading list


I’m in the midst of finishing my first solo book. It’s been an amazing and challenging experience. I’m in awe of the whole book process and can’t imagine penning an entire novel.

I’m super impressed and inspired by literary- gal- about- town: Emma Straub, a talented up and coming novelist with two books in the universe and multiple articles and stories in publications like The Paris Review, Slate and The New York Times. She also writes for teen bible–Rookie. In her spare time she acts as reporter at literary events. Watch this video. I especially enjoyed her interaction with Simon Doonan who naturally has unsolicited fashion advice for the Emma in her snazzy pink vintage frock. Anyway, I am supremely excited to read Emma’s books when I’ve finished my own book —that seems to be taking forever. Add them to your book list immediately!

  1. Other People We Married (Sept!)
  2. Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures

p.s I know you can’t judge a book by its cover but these covers are certainly well designed and enticing!
