NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get aheadu2015and keep it togetheru2015in New York City.
Itu2019s 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 u201Cimportantu201D 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 roommatesu2015her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writeru2015are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesnu2019t 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, sheu2019s 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, sheu2019d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anythingu2014and finding a hair product combination that works.
Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where sheu2019ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she canu2019t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though heu2019s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesnu2019t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for.
Someday, Someday, Maybe is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. Itu2019s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job.
