Staff Reviews

"Bossypants by Tina Fey has been hailed (by me, just now) as “the
gold standard in comedy/gender politics/boating mishap memoirs in
recent memory”. It is truly a riotously funny and whip-smart narrative
of the creative process of a quiet genius. Interspersed with hilarious
and sarcastic anecdotes and comedy bit-lets, Bossypants takes
the reader through Tina Fey’s flamboyantly formative childhood theatre
camp coming-of-age to her haltingly successful cultish devotion to
improvisational comedy, leading finally to her reluctant fame as a
writer and political satirist on Saturday Night Live and star of the
oddball, absurdist sitcom 30 Rock."

— Steven W.


Spirited and whip-smart, these laugh-out-loud autobiographical essays are "a masterpiece" from the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedy writer known for 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and SNL" (Sunday Telegraph).

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 halfhearted 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 always suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!
