In 1974, a fourteen-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream to become an actress, like her idols Ron Howard and Vicki Lawrence. 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. But the funny thing is, it all came true. Through a series of happy accidents, Jane Lynch created an improbable – and hilarious – path to success. A treasure of a memoir.
