Product description

Book Description

A funny, intimate memoir by Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, which recounts her experiences on Gilmore Girls - the first and second time - and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood.

From the Inside Flap

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', for the first time Graham settles in 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 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!').


Complete with 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 cozy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and - of course - talking as fast as you can.

Talking as fast as I can is an insightful look in to Laurens life, including an insightful look in to diets and the tricks to losing weight ... spoiler alert there isn't one. She gives us a frank discussion on botox and cosmetic surgery and why shes likely to never have either. She touches on the medias obsession with her love life (or lack of one) and the disbelief from many that she may actually be writing a book, all by herself.

But for me, the best part was her recap of all 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls. I even managed to feel a little teary as she talked about the show being cancelled after season 7 and the uncertainty that meant they never really had a chance to celebrate the shows success or say goodbye.

If you are one of the few who haven't yet seen Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life you may want to skip the last chapter as it does contain spoilers. However, it doesn't spoil the last four words.

I've seen a few interviews with Lauren, and its safe to say that she has managed to capture her personality between the pages.

I really enjoyed the first run of Gilmour Girls so I was super excited to learn they were creating new episodes on Netflix. I also learned Lauren Graham was writing a book and thought it might be fun to read after watching the show. I wasn't disappointed. I don't recommend reading it if you haven't seen the new episodes and want to (the book doesn't give too much away but there will be parts where you say 'huh' a lot if you haven't watched the show. Lauren's writing is light and fun, even when she is trying to make a serious point. I now want to watch the episodes again now that I've read her insights into filming.

I bought this book 6 months ago and finally picked it up last week, It took me just two days to finish. I would recommend this to anyone who likes reading and to anyone who likes Lauren Graham. The book is funny and inspiring and makes me what to do something great with my own life.I would give this book more than 5 stars if I could.

I really enjoyed this book. Lauren Graham is such a witty, fun writer and this book is effortless to read. It was so nice as a fan to be able to see behind the scenes of Gilmore Girls and experience the journey for Lauren in A Year in the Life.
