Introduction

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.

  "not so funny"by KristiK (see profile) 07/13/13

Although I LOVE Tina Fey, the book I was not crazy about. I think my favorite chapter was about her father. Other than that I really didn't see the point of this book being written and actually printed.... (read more)

It prompted some great discussion.

 
  "Bossypants"by JeanetteC (see profile) 05/07/13

It is just not as funny to read comedy as to hear it.This book had some funny parts and a few of the chapters were very entertaining, but overall it was not very interesting, especially for a person who... (read more)

 
  "Bosseypants"by swannwsong (see profile) 05/06/13

There were some laugh out loud passages in Tina Fey's Memoir. Although some of the group felt mediocre about the book we still enjoyed a great discussion full of laughs. We all wrote down a favorite quote... (read more)

 
  "Really funny & worth reading but tough for book club"by mystryrdr (see profile) 09/25/12

Being humorous and tongue in cheek, we're not really intended to take all her statements serious. Therefore, you end up debating accuracy or attitudes that she probably doesn't exactly hold. It can be... (read more)

 
  "Ehhhhh"by deblasiom (see profile) 07/04/12

This book was okay,I coudn't get into and I love tiny fey. Its something that you could take about with your book club, but then it would be like a political debate. Her humor was definitely present which... (read more)

  "You Can't Help But Love Tina Fey"by zodejodie4 (see profile) 04/15/12

I love Tina Fey. She's intelligent, she's witty, she's one of us. I think that's why we love Tina Fey. She's one of us. She came from nowhere, worked her tail off and made a good life for herself and... (read more)
