You are all familiar with the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” and yet, many of us are guilty of this offense each and every time we stroll through the library or bookstore searching for the next perfect read. Do yourselves a favor and heed this advice! Bossypants by Tina Fey, quite literally, boasts one of the most hideous covers of 2011. (Seriously! Look at it! What were they THINKING?!?) However, if you pass this one up, you will be depriving yourself of one of the funniest memoirs to come along in recent memory.
Those of you familiar with Fey’s work on SNL and 30 Rock, will be delighted to get a “behind the scenes” look into the creation of those shows. In addition, there is plenty of Tina’s self-deprecating humor to go around. Throughout the book, you get the inside look at Fey’s rise to the top of the comedy industry and the uphill battles she faced, in a male dominated industry, along the way. If you are searching for a light & funny read after the chaos of the holiday season, look no further.
