Kathleen Rooney's "For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs"

Kathleen Rooney is a founding editor of Rose Metal Press and the author of Live Nude Girl.

Here she shares her view on the biggest casting decision should her latest book, For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs, be adapted for the big screen:
The movie of my book would be animated. Since it is a collection of 11 individual essays, I am the only character who appears in each one. I would like to be played by Lisa Simpson. Her essential optimism—often misunderstood, often comically disappointed—makes her perfect for the role.
