In keeping with the feminine comedic non-fiction kick I have been on, I thought I would review Tina Fey’s Bossypants.
If you love 30 Rock, you will love Bossypants. It’s the story of Tina Fey and how she came to be the woman she is today. (Yes, I know. How cliché)
At the beginning of the story Tina embarks on the tale about how she received the scar on her left cheek. But she never truly reveals the whole story. I would even say she gives you half of the story. She says she’s sick of telling it and then it would lose all its mystery. I was sort of intrigued to find out what had happened myself, but I respect Tina’s privacy.
What can you really say about an autobiography? It’s funny. It’s the story of Tina Fey and her interesting chronicle of becoming one of the funniest women writers in the business. It’s not a hard sell. If you love Tina Fey. Even if you only like Tina Fey, you will definitely enjoy this book.
Her accounts of her nerdy existence are hilarious and heartwarming, while you still feel a little sad for high school Tina, with all the humiliation.
So what are you waiting for? Go read it! And Enjoy!
Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update,” before “Sarah Palin,” Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.
She has seen both these dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately half-hearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon — from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.
Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.
