No actress in Hollywood is as hot as
Jane Lynch right now. With an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a People’s
Choice under her belt for her scathing portrayal of everyone’s
favorite high school track-suit-donning dictator on Fox’s Glee,
Lynch is on top of the world. As readers of her memoir, Happy
Accidents, will learn, Lynch’s rise hardly happened overnight.
In fact, she didn’t make it big until her 40s, and even then it was
only after she battled alcoholism and anxiety, learned to embrace her
sexuality, and accepted that life is sometimes a series of
opportunities that come after what seem like disappointments.
Happy Accidents is partly a
comic memoir of behind-the-scenes Hollywood and partly an
inspirational narrative about self-acceptance. Often funny and
poignant and sometimes brutally honest, Lynch turns an unflinching
eye on her struggles to become comfortable in her own skin and allow
others to love her.
