Bossy pants is amazing
You know that cliche everyone says: ‘just be yourself’? It is universal advice given on topics such as career, romance, general happiness etc.
If you have ever been on the receiving end of this advice (as I often have), you should read Tina Fey’s Bossypants. It is a master class. Has Tina always been herself? To read her memoir, yes. And while most of us don’t have her wit, exhausting-to-even-read-about work ethic, or weird lucky resemblance to one of the most legitimately absurd political figures of my lifetime, she’s still undeniably inspiring in her authenticity.
The memoir includes anecdotes of growing up dorky, a few improv tales from Chicago, SNL vignettes and many 30 Rock shout-outs.
All written as if you were just chatting with your bestie, Tina Fey. Of course, she’s doing all the talking with her awesome stories and all you’re contributing is laughing and enthusiastic head-nodding.
