Lulu Allusions

The debut novel by Danielle Ganek, titled Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him, has just been published. There was a big review of the book in today's New York Times. The title of the book refers to a painting on display in an art gallery - the setting for much of the action in the novel. I'm not sure if this Lulu has anything to do with our Lulu. One never knows - I haven't read the book. Has anyone read this new novel ?


Images of film and television actress Mischa Barton can be found in the current issue of the French Elle. The actress is dressed up to look like various cinematic icons - such as Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe and of course, Louise Brooks. This blog has some scans from the magazine. Here is one of them - Mischa Barton as Louise Brooks.
