The first and only authorized guide to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel brings fans behind the scenes with the writers and onto the set with the actors to unpack every season of this Emmy-winning television series
The authorized companion to the Emmy-winning Amazon drama The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a show chronicling the adventures (and misadventures) of Midge Maisel in her transformation from fifties housewife to standup comedian. The series starred Rachel Brosnahan and remains beloved for its humor, vibrancy, and portrayal of a woman fighting the odds and the prevailing culture to gain success.
The book covers all five seasons of the show and captures its colorful and authentically vintage atmosphere. Featuring conversations with show creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, and insights from show stars Alex Borstein, Luke Kirby, and Stephanie Hsu, this is a deep dive that includes script extracts, production details, thoughtful analysis, every key place and set (from Coney Island to Carnegie Hall), plus a look inside Midge’s closet, her hair and makeup essentials, thoughts on fame, women in comedy, kitten heels, brisket, shooting a blizzard episode in the heat of summer, and all of the ingredients that combined to make the world of Mrs. Maisel so magical.
For fans and newcomers alike, the book is a binge-worthy treat that is as entertaining, glamorous, and irresistible as Mrs. Maisel herself.
