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!
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It’s hard not to hear Liz Lemon when you listen to Bossypants, although Tina Fey is smarter and more self-aware than her most famous character. Hearing Fey narrate her memoir of deeply personal stories about her experiences as a woman, comedian, and parent makes clear why she’s one of the most fearless voices in comedy. Thanks to her conversational flair and zippy timing, anecdotes like a random knife attack that left her with a permanent facial scar become unforgettable. We’re dying for a sequel.

I am male and a republican and I find Ms. Fey's comedy very funny. The book is very good. I love hearing a good witty book. 30 Rock is a hilarious show, if you haven't watched, do watch it. One reason I love it is because they do skewer both the left and right wing. I have had season subscriptions since the show started. If you want an enjoyable and funny listen please get this audiobook. Also purchase a season of 30 Rock if you like the book.
Can I get my autographed picture now Ms. Fey?
It's great to hear some stories from SNL, her childhood and 30 Rock. Tina is a talent that hopefully will be around for a long time.
