Yvonne Georgina Puig's "A Wife of Noble Character"

Yvonne Georgina Puig grew up in Houston, Texas. She currently lives in Santa Monica, California with her husband, Toben Seymour.

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.

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.
