When the hugely popular American TV comedy-drama Gilmore Girls came to the end of its seven-year run, in 2007, fans were bereft. Over the years the two lead actors, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, who played the eponymous mother and daughter, had become something akin to friends of audiences all over the world. Graham’s book is a laugh-out-loud, self-deprecating, smart autobiography, a heart-warming paean to the show that shot her to fame, and a love letter to pretty much everyone who helped her get where she is today. This second edition of the book includes a bonus chapter detailing the drama behind the show’s revival, in 2017, and the cast members who had passed on in the interim. Graham is a natural storyteller with a cheerily balanced view of fame and the warped lens through which the world can be viewed by those who submit to its glamour and horror.
