End Credits: How I Broke Up with Hollywood by Patty Lin

informative medium-paced


TV writer Patty Lin's story is the most compelling when it's focused on work, which may say more about me than it does about Lin, whose journey was about letting go of work and success as defining factors. It's fascinating to hear what goes on in writer's rooms and behind the scenes in general. Plus there's a little tell-alling, maybe a tell-a-little, rather than a tell all? tbh though, I would have appreciated a tell-more, because although I assume and believe that Lin was mistreated because of her sex and race, she doesn't give all that many concrete examples, other than her getting fired (option not picked up) a lot from writers rooms where she's an only.
