Before Liz Lemon, before Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," 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, Fey''s story can be told.
From the Publisher:
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 all 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!)

Annotation:
Because her comedy relies on hilarious cultural criticism and self-aware witticism, it's no surprise that Tina Fey's first book, BOSSYPANTS, is much more entertaining than your average celebrity essay collection. Here, the woman behind THIRTY ROCK and the best impersonation of Sarah Palin--ever--riffs on career ambition and television culture; dating dangers and treacherous honeymoons; her early days in comedy troupes and the endlessly funny road trip that is motherhood.

Praise

"Her buoyant, manic humor is sometimes the best way to expose and pin down the sheer absurdity of our current sexual politics....Her attitude is not resentment or simmering or a boring, ordinary, low-grade victimhood, but rather a more accurate and nuanced portrait of the modern working woman." - Katie Roiphe 03/20/2011

"[D]agger-sharp, extremely funny....BOSSYPANTS isn't a memoir. It's a spiky blend of humor, introspection, critical thinking and Nora Ephron-isms for a new generation." - Janet Maslin 04/04/2011

"[A] here's-what-happened-and-why-I think-this kind of book. It's honest and intimate, without any maudlin tales of childhood sorrow, no extraneous snark or hit-and-run tell-all gossip. It's just a great read from a mature thinker." - Janeane Garofalo 04/05/2011
