Biography & Memoir Book Club

Biography Book ClubThis month we're reading and discussing Bossypants by Tina Fey.

"Don't judge a book by its cover, or then again, maybe, in this case, do. Fey herself, hair gracefully blowing, perfectly made-up face resting on her . . . undeniably belonging-to-a-man arms. Of her many talents, perhaps the utmost is the ability to be funny both when condemning her morning breath (which, these days, she claims. smells like a snail left in the sun ) and slyly tapping hot-button political and feminist issues on the shoulder. This smartly written, satisfying compilation of essays is a delightful mishmash (a few stories have recently run in the New Yorker) of depictions of Fey as a child, on her honeymoon, as a chubby coed, and spending long days and nights in the real 30 Rock. Fey provides lots of script excerpts and insider info that TV fans will find interesting, such as the formerly unknow. male comedy writers pee in cups in their office. phenomenon, but there isn't really a bad apple in the bunch. Fey presents an earnest showcase of praise for fellow writers and comedians and for Sarah Palin's hairstylist. Fey has fearlessly clambered her way up the ranks of a man's world. But sigh not! This famously normal and fabulously talented celebrity still puts on her bossypants one leg at a time." ~ Book List *Starred Review
