'Talking as Fast as I Can' by Lauren Graham: EW Review

Updated

Talking as Fast as I Can

type:
Book
Current Status:
In Season
author:
Lauren Graham
genre:
Memoir

We gave it a B

Through a handful of essays, Graham shares stories from her early days as a struggling actress as well as behind-the-scenes tidbits from her seven seasons (and now the Nov. 25 Netflix revival) as beloved, quick-witted Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls. She also waxes nostalgic about her time on another treasured show, NBC’s Parenthood. As evidenced by her well-received 2013 novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, Graham really can write (she has an English degree from Barnard). What she hasn’t quite honed on the page, though, is the comedy she so excels at on screen. She’s much better in the honest, earnest passages where she’s not trying to entertain us. We like her already! B
