Publisher's Summary

In this collection of personal essays, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood reveals stories about life, love, and working as a woman in Hollywood along with behind-the-scenes dispatches from the set of the new Gilmore Girls, where she plays the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore once again.

In Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham hits 'pause' for a moment and looks back on her life, sharing laugh-out-loud stories about growing up, starting out as an actress, and, years later, sitting in her trailer on the Parenthood set and asking herself, 'Did you, um, make it?' She opens up about the challenges of being single in Hollywood ('Strangers were worried about me; that's how long I was single!'), the time she was asked to audition her butt for a role, and her experience being a judge on Project Runway ('It's like I had a fashion-induced blackout').

In 'What It Was Like, Part One', Graham sits down for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon and reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The essay 'What It Was Like, Part Two' reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later and what doing so has meant to her.

Some more things you will learn about Lauren: she once tried to go vegan just to bond with Ellen DeGeneres; she's aware that meeting guys at awards shows has its pitfalls ('If you're meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you've already set the bar too high'); and she's a card-carrying REI shopper ('My bungee cords now earn points!').

Including photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, this book is like a cosy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and - of course - talking as fast as you can.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Immersion totale dans le monde de Lauren Graham"

    Très bon livre, Lauren a la capacité de rendre n'importe quel sujet intéressant, qu'il s'agisse d'équipement de randonnée, de son processus d'écriture ou encore d'anecdotes des plateaux de tournage [...] elle ne laisse rien de côté et nous fait partager ses expériences en tant qu'actrice mais également en tant que personne.

    Would you listen to Talking as Fast as I Can again? Why?

    This was just perfect! I literally laughed and cried! Such an easy listen that I couldn't stop! Lauren has such an amazing way about her that makes you feel like she's sat next to you chatting away! I have recommended it to everyone!

    "Simply amazing"

    As an avid fan of Gilmore Girls and Lauren Graham I was incredibly excited to listen to Graham narrate such an important book.
    I listened to it solely on the train and I feel the need to apologise to the fellow passengers who looked at me strangely when I was laughing uncontrollably and who (hopefully) did not notice me tear up during the last few chapters.
    I adore this book. Graham is funny, sensitive and intelligent and this is all conveyed in her reading.
    I challenge anyone who listens not to laugh at her anicdotes of acting and adulting.

    "I can't believe it is over!"

    I knew I needed to hear this from Lauren's lips rather than read it myself. However, I enjoyed it so much that next time I'm going to read it. Whichever way you decide to consume it, bring tissues.
