Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, 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. 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. 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. Someday, Someday, Maybe 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.Praise for Someday, Someday, Maybe "A winning, entertaining read . . . [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."The Washington Post "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."The Wall Street Journal "With insight, care, and an abundance of humor . . . Graham demonstrates that her acting chops are not her only talent."—Library Journal "Thoroughly charming."—Entertainment Weekly "Sweet, funny, and full of heart . . . a dazzling debut."—Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and Where We Belong "Warm and funny, charming and smart."—Diane Keaton, New York Times bestselling author of Then Again "Graham deftly captures what it's like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in New York City."—Candace Bushnell, New York Times bestselling author of Sex and the City and The Carrie Diaries "Fresh and funny and full of zingers, Lauren Graham's charming writing style instantly drew me in."—Meg Cabot, bestselling author of the Princess Diaries and Heather Wells Mystery series
