A Novel Idea!: Talking As Fast As I Can - 2018

Talking As Fast As I Can

Reviewed by Allison W.

= Read & Recommend

A genre that I’ve recently grown to love and look for is the “successful and funny women writing about their successful and funny lives” genre. I enjoyed reading the tales of Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling but nothing filled my heart quite like the witty and relatable stories of Lauren Graham’s Talking as Fast as I Can, which I’ve admittedly read more than once. From her beginnings as a D.C. metro area local, to her college years on stage and her performances as the endearing Lorelei Gilmore and the rebellious Sarah Braverman, Graham opens the door to her life in a way that will make fans love her more than they already do. But back off she’s mine, okay?
