"Someday, Someday, Maybe" book thread #1 - Lauren to take on the Literary World!

What is the book about?

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.

Thanks for the new shocking thread, Katka!
I think the title, though, should maybe be more specific regarding Lauren, so that we don't go sharing just any book reports by mistake.

Wow, gone for a day and a half and missed the great news as it was happening. I am really excited for this book to come out. TV, movies, stage and now books, so many great sides of Lauren Graham. I'll take an album next.

Thanks for the thread, Katka. This is going to be fun to follow, I just hope we don't have to wait too long for the book to come out.

From a writer's twitter :

Lauren Graham's novel has a fighting chance to be good. One of the very few (2/100+) who was actually alert + sharp @ roundtable interviews.

Interesting. I'm confused about the roundtable interviews. I do not know anything about the business of book publishing apparently.
Kate, what are you really scared of? That he won’t wait for you? Or that he will? Caskett
