In her first work of nonfiction, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood recounts her experiences on Gilmore Girls—the first and second time—and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood. This collection of essays is written in the intimate, hilarious, and down-to earth voice that made her novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, a New York Times bestseller.

“This book contains some stories from my life: the awkward growing up years, the confusing dating years, the fulfilling working years, and what it was like to be asked to play one of my favorite characters again. You probably think I’m talking about my incredible achievement as Dolly in Hello, Dolly! as a Langley High School junior, a performance my dad called ‘you’re so much taller than the other kids.’ But no! I’m talking about Lorelai Gilmore, who, back in 2008, I wasn’t sure I’d ever see again. Also included: tales of living on a houseboat, meeting guys at awards shows, and that time I was asked to be a butt model. A hint: all three made me seasick.” — Lauren Graham

Quotes & Awards

  • “Essays from the actress and author, who dishes, with her trademark wit and whiplash delivery, on her return as Lorelei in Gilmore Girls.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Narrating her own memoir, Lauren Graham sounds warm and dishy and genuine—she’s funny, smart, likable, and yes, she talks fast. It makes for a light and diverting audiobook that’s geared, at least in part, to fans of the Gilmore Girls TV show, in which Graham starred as single mom Lorelai Gilmore. Graham does indeed share some stories about the show and her fellow actors. But anyone aspiring to a life in the creative arts could appreciate Graham’s hard-won wisdom after years of pursuing her acting dreams and facing the particular challenges of being a woman in Hollywood. An accompanying PDF with photos is referred to throughout the audio program, so be sure to have it handy while you’re listening.”
