Author speaks

Author, Ayelet Waldman, wrote Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, which was the original title of the film Natalie shot at the end of last year. It’s now called 17 Photos of Isabel and I imagine we’ll see it later this year or very early in 2010. But back to Ayelet, she’s spoken about the process of having her book made into a film.

Author of two novels—Love and Other Impossible Pursuits (Random House) and Daughter’s Keeper (Soucebooks Landmark)-as well as seven Mommy-Track Mysteries (Nursery Crimes being one title) from Prime Crime—Waldman talked about the film of Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, now in the can, directed by Don Roos, with Natalie Portman, Lisa Kudrow and Scott Cohen starring: “I didn’t write the script; my role was as a cheerleader. Everybody has crappy things to say about Hollywood; for me it was tremendous, being part of it getting made. They’re artists in a different medium.”
