Jane Lynch’s Memoir, HAPPY ACCIDENTS, Coming in September


The Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning Jane Lynch has landed a book deal to write her memoir. She’s currently a Glee fan favorite for her hilarious portrayal of cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, but Lynch has had a long career that includes The Second City, Christopher Guest movies, and Judd Apatow projects. Her memoir, Happy Accidents, will also focus on her sobriety and how she has learned to embrace her sexuality.

In a release, Lynch had this to say about the book:

“If I could go back in time and have a conversation with my 18-year-old self, the first thing I’d say is, ‘Lose the perm.’ Second, I would say, ‘Relax. Really—just relax. Don’t sweat it.’ For a long time, I was anxious and fearful that the parade would pass me by, and that someone or something outside myself had all the answers. Having finally reached a happy place—a happy accidents place—I want to share my story with others, to let them know things aren’t as bad as they fear.”

Voice, an imprint of Hyperion Books, will publish Happy Accidents in September. Last summer, Glee producers were said to be working on a fake autobiography for Lynch’s alter ego, Sue Sylvester, but there hasn’t been any further information on that project. How funny would it be if Jane Lynch and Sue Sylvester each had a book out at the same time? She could go on one book tour and kill two birds with one stone.
