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.I've been a big fan of Tina Fey, from her Saturday Night Live days. I was excited to see that she wrote a memoir. One of my friends listened to the audiobook version of this book and enjoyed it as well.
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.
Most of book is written tongue in cheek, so if you are looking for a serious memoir this book is not for you. I hadn't realized that she grew up in the Philadelphia area. I enjoyed the photos of herself and her family. Tina is a great role model for breaking the stereotypes and boundaries within the entertainment industry. This book is a light hearted and funny read.
