    In the summer of 1974, a 14-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream - a dream to become an actress. But it was a long way from the South Side of Chicago to Hollywood, and it didn’t help that she’d recently dropped out of the school play, The Ugly Duckling, or that the Hollywood casting directors she wrote to replied that "professional training was a requirement". But the funny thing is, it all came true....

    Merrill says: "Worth a listen, if you like Jane Lynch"
    "A name dropping blow by blow of average"

    What would have made Happy Accidents better?

    Less detail of every person's name, every show, every flight etc. After a while just felt like a long thank you to every person she had ever talked to. And every instance was an "it was amazing." “I was so happy”.


    What does Jane Lynch and Carol Burnett (foreword) bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was great to hear the actual author read the book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Many of the personal stories were insightful and interesting to hear about.


    Any additional comments?

    Unlike Bossy Pants by Tina Fey where I laughed through most of the book, Jane Lynch’s story was lacking humor. The last few chapters are slogging through every show she was ever on and every person she ever talked to … it was drudgery.
