Bossypants by Tina Fey
Posted by Caitie F on April 13, 2011
Summary (from me):
This is a collection of essays by Tina Fey, covering everything from summer theater’s effects on an awkward young woman, to breast feeding, to Sarah Palin.
I got this book for my birthday from my husband. I got it a few days later, since it came out on my birthday, but it was worth the wait!
I love Tina Fey. I think she is a brilliant, confident, and hilarious woman. She is a feminist in the best meaning of the word (aka she knows women are capable of anything and encourages young women to rise above stereotypes and expectations).
I don’t laugh out loud at things very much (something that annoys my husband to no end!) but I was laughing at every page. I even had to go to a different floor so I wouldn’t wake anyone up from my laughing. It was really that funny.
I could not recommend this book enough to Tina Fey fans. If you love her, you need it. I am glad we bought it because I will want to reread it again and again.
If you aren’t sure about her, but like funny women who are strong and stand up for women everywhere, read it.
Now, if you hate Tina Fey for her politics or her elitist tendencies, she has plenty of material to make you hate her more in it too (which she explains in the introduction).
This is the funniest book I have read in years. Whether she is discussing her life growing up, the inside of Saturday Night Live and Sarah Palin (which was absolutely fascinating), or her love for her daughter, she does it all with a sense of humor that makes it a joy to read!
