Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham
Ballantine Books | November 26th, 2016
In Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham gives us a look into her life before, during, and after Gilmore Girls. The book begins with her explaining her childhood and how she got into acting. She describes Gilmore Girls, season by season, what it was like working with Alexis Bledel and Kelly Bishop and all the other great actors from the show. She also talks about Parenthood and other things she has starred in and the experiences she has had while filming them. She mentions her first date with Peter Krause and doing The Royal We with Mae Whitman. She even talks about Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life and how weird it was to be back in “Stars Hollow” and filming without co-star Edward Kirk Herrmann. She even includes some pretty embarrassing photos of herself and entries from her diary.
Lauren Graham is one of my favorite actresses so, once I cracked this book open I was not able to put it down. If you have ever seen Gilmore Girls you know how fast Lorelai talks and while you are reading this book that is how you will read it. I was laughing and imagining Lorelai the whole time I was reading. You can get the book on audible and have Lauren Graham read the book to you – talking as fast as she does!
Anyways! As far as autobiographies go, Lauren Graham’s is great. Any fan of Gilmore Girls, Parenthood, Because I Said So, or anything else she has starred in, should definitely read this book.
