What has happened to you.
All the things. All the good and all the bad. And all the in-between things.
I’ve loved Bif since I was teeny little preteen and so much of my early teens was filled with her music. And I’m so glad to finally read her words on the things that happened to her.
And SOooooooOOooooo much happened to her.
Just read this. It’s so goddamn good that I have no words for how good it is.
I’ve literally tried to write extra paragraphs about it but I honestly have zero words. Just a feeling about this book. Like I want to grab her close and squeeze her tight.
So many bad things happen to people (duh) and she got more dollops than I have that’s for sure. Which makes me always feel like that Lady Gaga song “Come to Mama”.
Come to Mama. Tell me who hurt ya .
This was a surprise find in a thrift store. I had wanted to read it for a while but I do not have the monetary means to be purchasing a zillion books at full price.
I’ve always admired Jane Lynch and how funny she is and how she appears to give zero fucks about image and Hollywood and all that hoopla that comes with being an actress.
All she wanted to do was have fun and be funny and maybe make some cash doing both those things. (Although that was not her primary goal. She followed the funny.)
I always love when you can tell that someone has ACTUALLY written their biography as well, sure people write “Autobiography” but really, they had help. But you can tell that she wrote this from the heart and from her guts.
It was just as funny as you want it to be, while also leading you through her journey of what it felt like to realize she is a lesbian and what that meant to her and her family, and just a good book about what it’s like in the film industry while not boring you.
Definitely check it out if you feel like you are a misunderstood in any respect, she makes you feel like you are not alone in feeling different from the crowd.
Wonderful woman, wonderful book.
