About her new novel, A Wife of Noble Character, from the publisher:
A juicy, sprawling comedy of manners about a group of thirtysomethings navigating friendship, love, and their fledgling careers among Houston’s high-powered, oil-money elite.Here Puig shares some ideas for the above-the-line talent to adapt the novel for the big screen:
I would love to see Kathy Bates as Kitty, and James McAvoy as Preston. I think Kathy Bates could really nail the big personality of a Texas ex-pat with a sing-song way about her. James McAvoy is just exactly what I imagine Preston looks like. Handsome in a boyish way. A little dorky, but confident. I'm sure McAvoy could do a great Texas accent, although Preston doesn't have a strong one.Visit Yvonne Georgina Puig's website.
In terms of direction, it would be a dream to see what Ang Lee would do with this story. I love how he tells love stories.
