Today, Jane Lynch is enjoying life—in 2010, she’s gotten married and won an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a People’s Choice award—but fans would never know how hard it’s been to get there. Nothing, including finding love, was ever easy.  In her memoir, Lynch shares the story of her early childhood and how she was consumed with anxiety, feeling out of place in both her body and her family. At age 12, she first heard the word “gay,” and thought it was a disease.  Later, drinking helped dull the pain, and she became “a real-life Sue Sylvester,” feeling terrible about herself and pushing people away. At 31, she got sober and her career began to take off, with a commercial leading to a role in the Christopher Guest movie Best in Show, which helped her get cast in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Her career skyrocketed, and she finally found the courage to embrace her sexuality. And then, along came Glee, which changed her life completely.  Today Lynch has finally found the contentment she thought she’d never have. And it all came from the knowledge that if you can just get out of your own way, you, too, can find true happiness. Part comic memoir and part inspirational narrative, this is a book equally for the rabid Glee fan and anyone who needs a new perspective on life, love, and success.
