Bossypants, by Tina Fey

Okay, we’ll get this out of the way to start: I would read/watch anything Tina Fey writes, ever, pretty much. So I was pretty much guaranteed to like this book, which I did. Pretty much what you’d expect — memoir with a bunch of jokes and self-deprecating humor. Great stuff. Will leave you with a trio of gems from the book:


“That feeling of ‘I’m pretty sure this next step is wrong, but I’m just gonna do it anyway’ is part of the same set of instincts that makes me such a great cook.”


“Saturday Night Live runs on a combustion engine of ambition and disappointment.”


“…when Oprah Winfrey is suggesting you may have overextended yourself, you need to examine your fucking life.”

So good.


  1. I just finished Bossypants a couple nights ago, and also really enjoyed it!

  2. Ah, if only Tina were my boss! Brilliant.
