Just finished Bossypants by Tina Fey. Incredibly funny and insightful. I’m a big fan of “30 Rock” and the book chronicles the beginning of that show.
There is something awesome about women that are funny. And smart. And, admittedly, scared to death. If you haven’t read this book and are a fan of Tina Fey, go buy it now.
It’s not a long read. Fey keeps the book funny throughout. Nothing like laughing by yourself in your room at night to reassure the roommates you’re sane. It’s that funny. You giggle at something on every page.
Fey also touches on the plight of the female comedian. (SPOILER: She’s thinks it’s bullshit the way women comedy writers and actresses are treated.)
Bossypants wasn’t on my reading list. I don’t think I’ve finished a single book from that list, actually. This was a pleasant interruption. Glad my roommate threw it down the hall when I said I hadn’t read it.
