It’s that time again, Bettys! What time? Why, to kick back, hit the park, the picnic blanket, or the beach, and start reading up a storm! Luckily, we’ve got the perfect new summer read for you.
From Lauren Graham, AKA Lorelai Gilmore of Gilmore Girls fame, comes Someday, Someday, Maybe, a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead—and keep it together—in New York City.
The year: 1995. It’s January, as a matter of fact, 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. With a rapidly dwindling bank account, an agent who won’t return her calls, and a father who just wants her to come home, the odds look stacked against her—but for some reason, Franny keeps believing that she just might get what she came for.
Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed, calls Someday, Someday, Maybe “Sweet, funny, and full of heart… a dazzling debut”; Diane Keaton calls it “Warm and funny, charming and smart”; and according to Candace Bushnell, Miss Sex and the City herself, “Graham deftly captures what it’s like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in New York City.” High praise, indeed!
