The Biggest Bombshells Revealed in ‘Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy’ Book: Patrick Dempsey’s Exit Drama and More

The drama isn’t just on screen! Author Lynette Rice recounted Grey’s Anatomy’s 16-year tenure with the cast and crew in her forthcoming book, How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy, which is set for a Tuesday, September 21, publication date.

Rice’s unauthorized account (currently available for preorder) tells the “first inside story” of one of ABC’s most beloved medical dramas.

“Lynette Rice’s How to Save A Life takes a totally unauthorized deep dive into the show’s humble start while offering exclusive intel on the behind-the-scenes culture, the most heartbreaking departures and the more polarizing plotlines,” a summary from MacMillan Publishers read. “This exhaustively enthusiastic book is one that no Grey’s Anatomy fan should be without.”

The book — which features an illustrated version of the season 1 cast photo on the cover — was first announced in February. At the time, it was revealed that Entertainment Weekly’s editor-at-large conducted 80 new interviews with the series’ current and former cast, crew members and the musicians whose songs were featured on the show. Rice aimed to cover the drama’s first scripts, filming experiences and the most infamous scenes and characters.
