NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and the New York Times bestselling author of Talking as Fast as I Can comes an “insightful, honest, funny, and moving collection of captivating stories” (BuzzFeed).
“Graham is fast and furiously funny in her latest collection of essays. . . . Where Graham leads, we will definitely follow.”—E! Online
Lauren Graham has graced countless television screens with her quick-witted characters and hilarious talk show appearances, earning a reputation as a pop culture icon who always has something to say. In her latest book, Have I Told You This Already?, Graham combines her signature sense of humor with down-to-earth storytelling. Graham shares personal stories about her life and career—from her early days spent pounding the pavement while waitressing in New York City, to living on her aunt’s couch during her first Los Angeles pilot season, to thoughts on aging gracefully in Hollywood.
In “R.I.P. Barneys New York” Graham writes about an early job as a salesperson at the legendary department store (and the time she inadvertently shoplifted from it); in “Ryan Gosling Cannot Confirm,” she attempts to navigate the unspoken rules of Hollywood hierarchies; in “Boobs of the ’90s” she worries her bras haven’t kept up with the times; and in “Actor-y Factory” she recounts what a day in the life of an actor looks like (unless you’re Brad Pitt).
Filled with surprising anecdotes, sage advice, and laugh-out-loud observations, these all-new, original essays showcase the winning charm and wry humor that have delighted Graham’s millions of fans.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Actor and best-selling author Lauren Graham shares 15 personal stories filled with humor, warmth, and life lessons. The star of the TV shows Gilmore Girls and Parenthood has been making her way in show business for over 30 years, and her delightful memoir digs into all of it. Graham is wise and funny, making astute observations about dog ownership, her love of New York City, the challenges of having boobs in Hollywood, and the striking similarities between TV acting and working in a factory. Graham is a bubbly, personable narrator. Listening to her audiobook really drove home how refreshingly down-to-earth she is. Have I Told You This Already? is the next best thing to having a giant cup of coffee with Lorelai Gilmore herself.
