The first one, titled “How I Find Humor in Aging” was published on TIME.COM

Years ago, I was in Amsterdam with one of my friends, Jen. We’d smoked pot that day. Try not to be upset about this. In Amsterdam, that’s what people have for breakfast with their Pannenkoeken.

While walking through the city, I tripped and fell for absolutely no reason. After I fell, I lay on the ground for a moment in shock. I wasn’t hurt or anything, I was just surprised. My shoes were tied, the pavement was smooth, and I hadn’t been wildly weaving or jumping around or even walking very quickly. And yes, I was a little high, but not in a way that would have led to forgetting how to walk. There was really no excuse at all for me not to be upright. I looked up from the ground and said, “Jen! Gah! What if, someday, I become one of those people who just falls for no reason?” We found this idea so outrageous, so hilarious (because, high), that we laughed and laughed. To me, lying there on the ground, barely into my early 30s, falling for no reason was something that happened only to much, much older people.

Article: Lauren Graham – My New Chapter – People Magazine

Lauren talked to people.com about her new collection of essays available Nov. 15!

Lauren Graham definitely has more to say.

The actress, producer and writer — whose charm and quick wit have resulted in three New York Times bestsellers — is releasing another collection of essays about her life and career, Have I Told You This Already? Stories I Don’t Want to Forget to Remember, available Nov. 15.

Graham, 55, first started putting the book together “deep” into the COVID pandemic.

“I was waiting to hear and waiting to hear [about work], which I’m now writing down as another essay title because that is so much a part of an actor’s life,” the actress exclusively tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “And it was everybody’s life, of course, during that time. But I knew I would be more sane if I had something I was working on.”

“Have I Told You This Already?” : All About Lauren’s New Book

Lauren’s new book of essays “Have I Told You This Already?” will be released on November 15th!



From the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and the New York Times bestselling author of Talking as Fast as I Can comes a candid, insightful, and wildly entertaining essay collection.
 
“Fast, furious, smart, and ridiculously funny.”—Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of Gilmore Girls, Bunheads, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Lauren Graham has graced countless television screens with her quick-witted characters and hilarious talk show appearances, earning a reputation as a pop culture icon who always has something to say. In her latest book, Have I Told You This Already?, Graham combines her signature sense of humor with down-to-earth storytelling. Graham shares personal stories about her life and career—from her early days spent pounding the pavement while waitressing in New York City, to living on her aunt’s couch during her first Los Angeles pilot season, to thoughts on aging gracefully in Hollywood.

In “R.I.P. Barneys New York” Graham writes about an early job as a salesperson at the legendary department store (and the time she inadvertently shoplifted from it); in “Ryan Gosling Cannot Confirm,” she attempts to navigate the unspoken rules of Hollywood hierarchies; in “Boobs of the ’90s” she worries her bras haven’t kept up with the times; 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, these all-new, original essays showcase the winning charm and wry humor that have delighted Graham’s millions of fans.

Here’s some praise for the book, including some from Amy Sherman-Palladino!

“Lauren Graham’s fourth delicious book of musings is fast, furious, smart, and ridiculously funny. Apparently she’s not just our modern-day answer to Carole Lombard, but she has a generous dose of Dorothy Parker thrown in for good measure. It’s not particularly fair, actually. But then again, life never is.”—Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of Gilmore Girls, Bunheads, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

“As funny and warm and charming as Lauren herself.”—Jenny Han, #1 New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series and The Summer I Turned Pretty series

“With her signature humor, tenderness and warmth, Lauren Graham offers us another gem of a book in Have I Told You This Already? A read so good it feels like having a hot cup of coffee with the author herself.”—Rebecca Serle, New York Times bestselling author of One Italian Summer

“Fabulous. Nora Ephron‒level writing.” —Benjamin Svetkey, editorial director of Los Angeles Magazine and author of Leading Man

“[A] lively set of personal essays . . . Graham writes with humor, authenticity, and humility. . . . [She] presents a charming and candid depiction of life as a celebrity that reminds us they are, in fact, just like us, with their own struggles, triumphs, and insecurities. . . . Fun, candid tales of Hollywood make for entertaining reading.”Kirkus Reviews
