Bossypants | by Tina Fey

Bossypants by Tina Fey
(Reagan Arthur Books, 2011, 288 pages)

Tina Fey–star of 30 Rock and former Saturday Night Live actress and writer, and winner of the 2010 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor–hit a home run with her memoir, Bossypants. Her witty, sarcastic humor made me laugh aloud many times. Fey discusses her life growing up in a Greek neighborhood, working a summer job at a theatre for children, traveling with an improv group, and working on SNL and 30 Rock. Other chapters offer beauty and parenting tips. The text is supplemented with funny photographs of Fey, including her as an awkward child. Also included is a reprint of an SNL skit, featuring Fey as Sarah Palin (her most popular impersonation) and Hillary Clinton (played by Amy Poehler), showing the edits they made. If you like Tina Fey on TV, you will like this book.

  1. I loved “Bossypants”! I’m a Tina Fey fan anyway, but I literally guffawed while I was reading this book. This recounting of Fey’s life gives you a better appreciation of her and her humor. Plus, the pictures she included of her growing up are amazing :o) She’s already a very accessible actress, but reading this made me want to be friends with her that much more. If you’re looking for a fun, light summer read – this is the perfect book!

  2. I just listened to the audiobook version of this with my husband and it was HILARIOUS. Fey reads it herself and it makes it 10x better to hear her read the book the way she wants it to be read. That being said, a disc is included with PDFs of all the images in the book so you don’t miss out on that excitement.
