The only thing better than reading Lauren Graham's new memoir is listening to Lauren Graham's new memoir, as narrated by the author. Yes, the woman behind everyone's favorite TV mom, Lorelai Gilmore, narrates the audiobook version of her memoir, Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (And Everything in Between). Bustle has an exclusive excerpt below, so listen up!
As the title suggests, Lauren Graham spills some major Gilmore Girls secrets in her memoir, but the book also delves into her life as an up-and-coming actress, her role on Parenthood, and her struggles with body image, relationships, and sexism in Hollywood. Like Lorelai, Lauren Graham has an energy that leaps off the page — and that vivacity and passion comes through even more wondrously in the audiobook.
In the audiobook excerpt, Lauren Graham re-watches Gilmore Girls season one and shares behind-the-scenes secrets from the set, her feelings about the cast and script, and the feeling of absolute exhilaration she felt in that first year on set. She even reveals some interesting tidbits about Luke's character transition from grumpy diner owner to strong-but-silent love interest, and shares a funny anecdote about how Kelly Bishop (aka: Emily Gilmore) accurately predicted one of Graham's greatest real-life romances... years in advance.
