Bossypants Audiobook Summary
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!
Bossypants Audiobook Review
This was such a delight to read. I’ve read it twice now, and I wish I had the talent to do it justice in my review.
The book is structured more or less chronologically, which makes sense with an autobiography. However, there are several things which set it apart from the average autobiography, or even biography. Firstly, it is very, very funny. Laugh out loud funny, and that doesn’t happen very often. And secondly, it was surprisingly insightful for something billed as comedy. It is obvious that Fey is very observant watcher of the human species, and is introspective enough to offer us genuine insight into what it’s like to live in the world today. There were certainly insights that made me reflect on my own life, without it ever being preachy.
I read Bossypants the first time before watching 30 Rock, and there are a couple of chapters which didn’t mean a lot as I didn’t know the characters or the players. I still loved it, but it made more sense reading it the second time after watching 30 Rock.
What becomes clear when reading this book, is just how smart, sassy and capable Fey is. She is humble in many ways, which makes her humour so approachable. But there is a clear strength of character which allows her to follow through on projects despite difficulties or obstacles. So while this is very, very funny, and a joy to read, it is also quite inspirational. I’m giving a copy to a friend’s teenage daughter who wants to be a writer. I think it will be a hit!
