by Tina Fey (audiobook)
About the Book
“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 all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.”
Oh. Em. Gee. I know I’m always saying that the books I read are great on audiobook, but Bossypants is one that you really need to listen to because it is told by Tina Fey herself. She cracks. me. up.
Your biggest question of Tina might be why she has that scar. She does allude to it. But in this memoir we come to understand how she got to where she is as a comedienne, writer, and actress.
I think one of the funniest moments is when she describes her breast pump as a “William Sonoma tit juicer.” Oh, that was a good one. (I attempted to use a breast pump with both kids. In fact I pumped at work every day in plain sight until my son was 10 months old at which point I cut back on breastfeeding.)
This is a must read/listen! Snark at it’s finest!
I highly recommend this one as an Audiobook.
