Happy Accidents

Jane Lynch, read by the author, foreword read by Carol Burnett. Hyperion/Voice, unabridged, six CDs, 7 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4013-2613-5
Starting in the Midwestern town of Dolton, Ill., author and narrator Jane Lynch chronicles her life, detailing childhood, graduate school, Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, Shakespearean stage productions, commercials, television pilots, supporting roles in comedies, and Emmy Award nominations. Following her triumphs and struggles, listeners will find themselves rooting for Lynch as she works through self-loathing and sexual repression and humbly chalks up her fame to a series of “happy accidents.” Lynch’s signature dry and acidic delivery comes out at times—to seal a punch line or offer up a pithy one-liner to end a chapter—but overall, her voice takes on a softer tone. Her narration is intimate and her honesty, humor, and warmth come across perfectly. Lynch’s performance will leave listeners engaged, entertained, and wanting more. A Voice hardcover. (Sept.)
