I have recently delved into some memoirs, feeling unusually bored of fictional fare. One of these memoirs I decided to read lately was written by the actress who plays Sue Sylvester, one of my favorite characters on one of my favorite TV shows, Glee.
I’ve always been a Jane Lynch fan, from when I first saw her in Christopher Guest’s movies (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind) to some of her bit parts in films (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) to her current gig which catapulted her into superstardom, Glee.
Lynch has always played strong characters that stand out in ensemble pieces, and there’s a certain depth behind her eyes that’s always intrigued me – something that lets her audience know that there’s more to her than meets the eye. And there certainly is.
I was captivated by Lynch’s heartfelt, honest prose, and I couldn’t wait to be able to pick my book up again if I had to stop reading for a while. I’m sad it’s over. Reading this book is like having a great conversation with a friend – always fulfilling, definitely relatable, and inspiring in ways you’d have never dreamed.
If you’re a Sue Sylvester or Glee fan, or simply someone who’s ever felt misunderstood or insecure, I highly recommend this memoir. It is well written, unabashedly honest, insightful, hilarious, and the kind of book you’ll be recommending to your own friends.
