Lauren Graham opens up about her years working in the entertainment business-from the sublime to the ridiculous-and shares personal stories about everything from family and friendship to the challenges of aging gracefully in Hollywood. In "RIP Barneys New York," she writes about an early job as a salesperson at the legendary department store-and the time she inadvertently shoplifted; in "Ne Oublie" she warns us about the perils of coming from an extremely forgetful family; 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, Graham's latest collection of all-new, original essays showcases the winning charm and wit that she's known for.… (more)

A pleasant collection of essays, entertaining to listen to. Most of the Gilmore Girls stories were in her previous collection, Talking As Fast As I Can, so these essays cover other topics, from wellness retreats to working (and shopping) at Barney's to adopting a pandemic puppy. "Old Lady Jackson" makes a delightful reappearance. ( )

Boy, I did not like this. What a surprise! I guess I don't like her style of humor? It just wasn't humorous to me, if it was meant to be. A lot of these were annoying, and frankly a lot of the topics felt superficial and shallow and that's not always terrible, but in this case it just didn't work for me. I ended up skimming several of the stories, and in completely skipping one or two of them.

Then there were other sections that made me wonder why they were included at all, like the list of advice about directing that did not feel applicable and seemed more like a page she ripped out of her journal to fill up some more space in the book even though it wasn't really relevant or entertaining.  ( )

what a fun read! well listen.. i listened to this audiobook while working. 4 hours. i love Lauren Graham's voice. it's motherly and charismatic and i enjoy her talking to me. i went back and forth about if i liked it or not.. and in the end decided that overall this collection was touching and real and Lauren Graham is contagious. i'm glad i read this ( )

i really liked this. there are a couple of essays in here that are really for those in the business or who are students of film making, but other than those (and even those were fine, they just weren't written for me and so weren't as interesting to me) i found this surprisingly well done, funny, and worth reading. her voice is excellent and only enhanced by the audio, but comes across well just in her writing. i don't really have the cultural connection to her work that most people who read this probably do, and i still really enjoyed it.

Lauren Graham - Have I Told You This Already?: A little bit of insight into living as a semi-famous actor in LA, but fairly superficial. #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )
