Julianna Baggott's "Harriet Wolf's Seventh Book of Wonders"

Julianna Baggott has published more than twenty books over the last twelve years.

Her she dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, Harriet Wolf's Seventh Book of Wonders:
Harriet Wolf has to span from young to quite old, a real stretch. I think Natalie Portman and Amy Adams both have an agelessness about them and their beauty translate to any era.

Harriet's love affair that spans the twentieth century is with Eppitt -- brilliantly portrayed by James McAvoy. Why not?

After seeing Olive Kitteridge, I envision Eleanor as played by Frances McDormand, absolutely.

Mia Wasikowska would make a brilliantly ethereal Tilton, and Ruthie would be beautifully done by an actress like Maggie Gyllenhaal, who plays both tough and vulnerable.

J.K. Simmons would be a delightful George.
