You might know Jane Lynch as the cheerleading coach everyone loves to hate on "Glee," the intense lesbian dog-trainer in "Best in Show," or the store manager offering to deflower Steve Carell in "The 40-Year-Old" "Virgin." But before that, she was just a teenager in Dolton, Illinois, with a dream to be an actress. Here, Lynch looks back on her often-bumpy journey to success with humor and candor. All of her experiences--from moving back in with her parents at twenty-five to struggling with anxiety to selling flea collars on a home-shopping network--have made her, and her characters, stronger, wiser, and more hilarious. Today, Lynch has found the contentment she never thought she'd have, finally embracing her sexuality, finding love, and accepting herself. Part comic memoir, part inspirational narrative, this is a book for "Glee" fans and anyone who needs a new perspective on life, love, and success.
