It's January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing "important" work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates, her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer, are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn't exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she's not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she'd happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything and finding a hair product combination that works
We all need something to laugh about, and actress/author Lauren Graham gives us countless humorous moments in Someday, Someday, Maybe, a heartfelt story of self-realization about Franny Banks, an actress looking for her big break in show business. Lauren Graham, of Gilmore Girls fame, uses her insiders knowledge of the performing arts to craft a warm, entertaining and inspiring story.
Franny Banks is someone we can relate to, a down to earth girl trying to make it in a world of sharks and piranhas. Franny moves to New York City and gives herself three years to succeed in "the business". With only six months left, she must pull out all the stops to get her big break.
Lauren graham narrates this audio book with her trademark crisp, snappy style of delivery that she used on the Gilmore Girls. Funny, poignant and smart, we follow Franny on her journey of discovery and share a lot of fun and laughter along the way.
