About the Book
Before there was Liz Lemon, before there was "Sarah Palin," before there was "Weekend Update"--there was a woman with a dream. A dream that one day she would write a book about how she got there. But she had to get there first. On her way to becoming an award-winning superstar, Tina Fey struggled through some questionable haircuts, some after-school jobs, the rise of nachos as a cultural phenomenon, a normal childhood, a happy marriage and joyful motherhood. Her story must be told! Fey's pursuit of the perfect Beauty Routine may actually give you laugh lines, and her depiction of her whirlwing tour of duty as the Other Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live" takes you behind the scenes of a comedy event that transfixed the nation. Now Fey can reflect on what she's learned: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.
From the Publisher
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.
(Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!)
