Description :  <b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • In this collection of personal essays, the beloved star of <i>Gilmore Girls</i> and <i>Parenthood </i>reveals stories about life, love, and working as a woman in Hollywood—along with behind-the-scenes dispatches from the set of the new <i>Gilmore Girls, </i>where she plays the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore once again.</b><br /><br /><b>With a new bonus chapter</b><br /><br /> In <i>Talking as Fast as I Can,</i> 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 <i>Parenthood </i>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 <i>Project Runway</i> (“It’s like I had a fashion-induced blackout”).<br /><br /> In “What It Was Like, Part One,” Graham sits down for an epic <i>Gilmore Girls </i>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.<br /><br /> 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!”).<br /><br /> Including photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent <i>Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,</i> 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.

2 Someday, Someday, Maybe

Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2013-04-30
Description :  From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of <i>Gilmore Girls </i>and<i> Parenthood,</i> comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead―and keep it together―in New York City.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing “important” work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates―her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer―are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn’t exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she’d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything—and finding a hair product combination that works.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she’ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she can’t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though he’s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesn’t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <i>Someday, Someday, Maybe</i> is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job.<br /><br /><b><b>Look for special features inside.

[Lauren Graham] has smartly mined just the right details from her own experience, infusing her work with crackling dialogue and observations about show business that ring funny and true.”<b>—<i>The Washington Post</i></b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “A charmer of a first novel . . . [Graham] has an easy, unforced style and, when the situation calls for it, a keen sense of the ridiculous.”<b>—<i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “With insight, care, and an abundance of humor . . . Graham demonstrates that her acting chops are not her only talent.”<b><i>—Library Journal</i></b><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “Thoroughly charming.”<b><i>—Entertainment Weekly</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “Sweet, funny, and full of heart . . . a dazzling debut.”<b>—Emily Giffin</b>, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Something Borrowed</i> and <i>Where We Belong</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Warm and funny, charming and smart.”<b>—Diane Keaton</b>, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Then Again</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Graham deftly captures what it’s like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in New York City.”<b>—Candace Bushnell</b>, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Sex and the City</i> and <i>The Carrie Diaries</i><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> “Fresh and funny and full of zingers, Lauren Graham’s charming writing style instantly drew me in.”<b>—Meg Cabot</b>, bestselling author of the Princess Diaries and Heather Wells Mystery series

She was diagnosed with cancer—specifically, with acute lymphoblastic lymphoma. In her memoir, Lauren considers the everyday life of a cancer patient and recalls all the challenges she experienced with humor and brutal honesty. Her unique storytelling, presented through the e-mails that she wrote over the course of nearly three years of cancer treatments, provides an intimate window into her struggle with cancer. Week by week, month by month, and treatment by treatment, she shares her journey and experiences in group e-mails to family and friends with wit, fear, stubbornness, faith, and candor. After recounting the procedures, tests, and general medical things she experienced, she ends each e-mail with several wonderful quotes, which offer as much solace to her as they would to those reading her e-mails. Seriously—Cancer? I Do Not Have Time for This! tells a true story of inspiration for anyone who is facing illness or difficulties in life. “Lauren is a real trooper who viewed her cancer treatment in such a positive, relatable, inspiring, and hilarious perspective. …This book is a must read for all young adults battling cancer, for healthcare providers, and for families and friends supporting their loved ones during their treatment.” —Brenda Muriera-Noggy, senior research nurse, Leukemia/Lymphoma Department, Division of Pediatrics, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center

6 Parlare a raffica

Author : Lauren Graham
Genre :  Biographies & Memoirs  Books 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2016-11-29
Description :  Attrice, produttrice, scrittrice di romanzi, Lauren Graham ha deciso di raccontarsi al pubblico a modo suo: lasciandosi andare, parlando alla velocità della luce proprio come farebbe Lorelai Gilmore di Una mamma per amica, il suo personaggio preferito che tanto le somiglia. In questo libro l'attrice preme il pulsante «pausa» per riguardare la sua vita con quello stile frizzante che conosciamo e raccontarci storie divertenti sulla sua adolescenza, dall'infanzia in Giappone al legame con il padre, sulle dure sfide che ha affrontato a Hollywood (le chiesero anche di far fare un provino al suo sedere), sulla sua esperienza sul set di Parenthood o come giudice di Project Runway. E, naturalmente, ci svela i dietro le quinte della serie televisiva che più ha amato e che l'ha resa celebre. Come in una lunga maratona di Una mamma per amica, Lauren rivela tutto ciò che c'è da sapere sul suo personaggio, sullo show e sulle nuovissime puntate, racconta dei rapporti con i membri del cast e riporta estratti del diario che l'attrice ha tenuto durante le riprese dei quattro episodi dell'ottava stagione, Una mamma per amica: di nuovo insieme. Un libro imperdibile per tutti i fan della serie, per chi ha amato Lauren e vuole tornare a ridere con le sue avventure/disavventure, ma soprattutto per chi sente la mancanza di Lorelai Gilmore.

Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2014-03-25
Description :  Quante volte Franny Banks, passeggiando sulla Quinta Avenue con gli anfibi e l'uniforme da cameriera, si è detta: Un giorno, forse, camminerò su questa strada con i tacchi alti e il portamento da vera diva. Quando è arrivata a New York, aspirante attrice e aspirante molte altre cose, Franny aveva un piano: sfondare nel cinema nel giro di tre anni. Ora ne sono passati due e mezzo, e le cose non stanno andando esattamente come sperato. La sola parte che ha ottenuto è stata in uno spot pubblicitario di imbarazzanti maglioni natalizi, e gli unici fan sono i suoi due coinquilini. Forse è il caso di trovarsi un piano B, come le consigliano tutti: Franny già si vede mentre torna a casa da suo padre, sposa l'ex fidanzato storico e «si sistema». Eppure, dentro di sé, sa che non è ancora pronta a tradire il suo sogno e non vuole rinunciare a seguire le orme dei suoi idoli: Diane Keaton e Meryl Streep. La svolta arriverà inaspettata, come in una battuta fuori copione: un giorno, durante lo spettacolo di fine corso alla scuola di recitazione, Franny cade rovinosamente sul palco. Sembra la fine della sua carriera mai decollata, e invece sarà il vero inizio. Tra esilaranti avventure sul set, incontri bizzarri, provini assurdi e un amore inatteso, Franny scoprirà che la vita può sorprenderti molto più di un film.

Release Date :  2017-05-09
Description :  Ebben a kötetben Lauren Graham egy pillanatra megállítja az időt, és végignéz eddigi életén. Hangos nevetésre késztető történeteket mesél a gyerekkoráról, a karrierje beindításának időszakáról és arról, amikor évekkel később a Vásott szülők forgatásán a lakókocsijában ülve feltette magának a kérdést: „Te most… ööö… befutottál?” Őszintén beszél arról is, milyen szinglinek lenni Hollywoodban („Már vadidegenek is aggódtak értem, olyan sokáig voltam szingli.”), arról, amikor egy alkalommal meghallgatáson vett részt a feneke, valamint arról is, milyen volt zsűritagnak lenni A kifutóban („Mintha csak divatalapú rövidzárlatot kaptam volna.”). Visszaemlékszik, milyen élmény volt, amikor megkapta a pergő nyelvű Lorelai Gilmore szerepét, valamint milyen érzés volt kilenc évvel később újra felvenni a szerepet, és mit jelentett neki mindez.<br /> A könyvet fotók és a Szívek szállodája: Egy év az életben forgatása közben Graham által vezetett napló részletei színesítik. Olyan, mint egy kellemes, otthon töltött este, amikor mindent alaposan kibeszélünk a legjobb barátunkkal, nevetünk, történeteket mesélünk, és persze mindent gyorsan elhadarunk.
