“Bossypants” by Tina Fey
This book is a joy. From the clever “press” quotes on the book jacket, to every single word inside, Tina Fey’s unique and candid comedy voice narrates your way through her journey from normal and awkward theater girl with too many gay friends, to the media phenomenon and working mom she is today – without ever getting egotistical or sounding too proud of herself. And, oh yeah, remaining incredibly funny and self-deprecating from cover to cover.
(Yes, she talks about Sarah Palin. And Alec Baldwin and Amy Poehler, too!)
“Bossypants” is a breeze and a truly charming and funny read. The closest thing I can compare it too is Mindy Kaling’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” though let’s face it, without Tina’s success the road would be a little harder for all the slightly younger female comedians/writers out there, including La Kaling.
Ms. Fey, in all her awesomeness, will reside on my bookcase for many years. She’s a funny lady, and I enjoyed this book tremendously!
