With her signature sense of humor and down-to-earth storytelling, Lauren Graham opens up about her years working in the entertainment business--from the sublime to the ridiculous--and shares personal stories about everything from family and friendship to the challenges of aging gracefully in Hollywood.
[Graham's] breezy, stream-of-consciousness style allows her to tell stories as if she’s talking to a friend, and for fans of the actress, it probably feels that way ... Graham keeps a self-deprecating but not overly modest tone, poking fun at the things in her life that deserve poking fun at, and treating serious topics with both humor and pathos. A must-read for Graham fans interested in what she’s been up to since Talking as Fast as I Can (2016), and a good pick for anyone who likes behind-the-scenes Hollywood stories.
Insightful ... She’s candid about the demands of show business, too, and the acrobatics that actors have to perform to fit into the Hollywood mold ... These stories and anecdotes are especially raw, real and humorous. Graham’s writing is fresh, sharp and very funny, with fast, staccato sentences that evoke what it must be like to have a conversation with her. Her voice invites the reader in, emanating a refreshing openness that will make them want to be her best friend. Have I Told You This Already? is an enjoyable, amusing revelation.
A charming glimpse into the life of a relatable and extremely likable actress ... Humorous storytelling .... Her essays on filmmaking provide sage advice, and her tribute to New York is a beautiful love story. Woven through the tapestry of her stories is a thread of sadness ... Graham’s down-to-earth stories are funny and touching; a surefire fourth best-seller.
