Reader recommendation: Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures
Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.
I just finished reading Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures, a debut novel by Emma Straub. It starts out with a young girl, one of three sisters, in a theatrical family in Door County, Wisconsin, and ends up in Los Angeles, having followed the life of that young girl. It is beautifully written, with some funny parts that I enjoyed. This is a very moving book about love and family.
