Funny, heart-wrenching, and fearlessly candid, Patty Lin’s memoir pulls back the curtain on life as the lone Asian American woman in some of Hollywood’s most famous writers’ rooms (Friends, Freaks and Geeks, Desperate Housewives, and Breaking Bad). It’s an intimate and honest exploration of how she survived the simultaneous impact of criticism and stress, as her wildest dreams as a television writer came true—and how much we’re willing to sacrifice and compromise for success.
