Jane Lynch, the openly lesbian Golden Globe-winning star of Glee, will in September publish a memoir. In the book, titled Happy Accidents, Lynch will discuss how sobriety and becoming comfortable with her sexual orientation helped lead her to success, both professionally and in her personal life.
The Advocate reports that Lynch, in talking about the book, said, “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.”
