End Credits: How I Broke Up With Hollywood

End Credits by Patty Lin is an in depth memoir of working in the Hollywood writers room from someone who wrote for some of the most popular shows, Friends, Desperate Housewives, Freaks & Geeks & Breaking Bad. This sounds like an opportunity of a life time right? Eventually Patty quits the business after dealing with toxic sexist and racist environment for too long. This book came out at the worst time for Hollywood with the strikes going on.


Pros & Cons

I was lucky enough to get an early copy for review and I’m glad I did. I sped through it for 4 days and finished it yesterday. I like that this book is more than just a memoir about showbiz and fame. We read a little bit about her background and what made her want to pursue writing. I also like that we learn the age old lesson that if something is toxic that you must listen to your gut when something is telling you it’s time to get out. The grass is not always greener on the other side. I don’t have really anything negative to say about this book, I wish it didn’t take her so long to get out of that bad relationship with her ex but better late than never.



Overall I’m so happy I received an early copy from the publishers for this book. It was definitely worth the read. Thank you Patty for having the courage to write this memoir and leaving everything toxic behind, I know it couldn’t have been easy for you.  I also hope you write more books in the future. Thank you to the publishers for the early copy.
