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!
Tina Fey charts the course of her remarkable life and details her many misadventures in this hilarious audio edition of her best-selling memoir. Covering everything from her childhood and family to her days performing improv in Chicago and time at Saturday Night Live, Fey never fails to entertain. Her conversational narration is superb, her comedic timing spot-on, and her stories laugh-out-loud funny. Additionally, Fey creates a host of unique voices for the many characters with whom she crosses paths. Whether she's climbing a dangerous mountain to impress an uninterested would-be boyfriend or holding court on parenting and gender roles, Fey leaves listeners laughing and longing for more. Totally addictive and utterly enjoyable, this audio is an absolute must for fans and just about everyone else too. A Reagan Arthur hardcover.
Loved it! You can read the sarcasm which is very difficult to do.
Writing = good! Tech = bad.
Tina Fey can write the hell out of a book. This piece of writing was funny, touching, smart, (not overly)political, sexy and smelled like donuts.
The enhanced bit malfunctioned, which sucked out loud and distracted me from the good bits. The sound clip was funny, but about 80% of the photos didn't render, causing jokes to go flat due to lack of reference and making me concentrate on thinking "Is that bit a cow on fire or a photo of her Grandma?"
Otherwise a tour de force
I am not a big fan of SNL, just not my type of humour, but am a huge fan of 30 Rock. Love, love, love this book. Smart, funny, witty, honest.
