Bridget Asher's "All of Us and Everything"

Bridget Asher's novels include The Provence Cure for the Brokenhearted, The Pretend Wife, and My Husband’s Sweethearts.

Her new novel, All of Us and Everything, is "about reconciliation between fathers and daughters, between spouses; the deep ties between sisters; and the kind of forgiveness that can change a person’s life in unexpected and extraordinary ways."

(Asher is in real life the critically acclaimed, bestselling author Julianna Baggott.)

Here Asher dreamcasts an adaptation of All of Us and Everything:
I see Susan Sarandon and J.K. Simmons are starring in The Meddler and I'm very much looking forward to their chemistry. They'd be wonderful as the eccentric Augusta Rockwell and the sentimental spy she fell in love with.

I'd love to see Uma Thurman or Nicole Kidman or Naomi Watts as the oldest sister, trying to stay in control as her life veers off course; Kate Hudson could play a really messy middle sister, Liv Rockwell -- a shout to her performance in Almost Famous; and Natalie Portman as the youngest sister, Ru, who's forced to grow up.

Teddy Whistler? I'd love to see Jason Bateman in that role. I'm very much looking forward to The Family Fang, which he directs and stars in. (In fact the author of The Family Fang, Kevin Wilson, gave All of Us and Everything a wonderful blurb.)
