Gilmore Girls hit our screens in 2000 and has been our autumn obsession ever since. There’s a reason that Vogue calls itthe quintessential autumn girl show’ and that, years later, we’re still head over heels with Stars Hollow.

Not only does it get binged by millions of fans ever year, but new audiences fall in love with the iconic series – from mothers and daughters who see themselves in Lorelei and Rory, girls battling it out over #TeamLogan or #TeamJess, or anyone who cherishes the crunch of autumn leaves and pumpkin spiced latte season.

Despite our enduring love affair with the show, Ann Hood – the author of this anthology – never understood why there wasn’t anything exploring what Gilmore Girls means to its fans. This essay collection, written by a range of different contributors, set about to fix this. From a piece about being a single mother, a deep dive into Lorelai’s fashion, the fantasy of small-town life and everything in between, this is a joyful, surprising and moving celebration of Gilmore Girls, and what the show reveals about us.

With essays from: Anjanette Delgado, Ann Hood, Annabelle Mei, Cathi Hanauer, Erin Almond, Francesco Sedita, Freya North, Joanna Rakoff, Katie Moulton, Michael Ruhlman, Chris Eigeman, Nina de Gramont, Rand Richards Cooper, Sanjian Sathian, Tracey Minkin and Yassmin Abdel-Magied.

Ann Hood is the author of over a dozen novels, including the bestsellers The Knitting Circle, The Obituary Writer, The Book That Matters Most, Fly Girl and Somewhere Off the Coast of Maineitchen Yarns: Notes on Life, Love and Food and Comfort: A Journey Through Grief, which was named one of the top ten books of 2008 by Entertainment Weekly. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island and New York.
