  • Description

    Bossypants is an autobiographical comedy by the famous comedienne Tina Fey based on her observations of her life and amusing anecdotes describing it.

    Summary Of The Book

    An autobiography that shares its characters with the author; Bossypants is precise, witty, powerfully observant and tremendously hilarious.
    Bossypants tells the life story of actor Tina Fey. It shows how a nerdy school girl went on to become a successful actor, writer, wife and a bewildered mother. Tina Fey’s success as a comedienne can be attributed to the purity of her heart and her quirky perspective on life and everything else. It is these experiences that make her performances so memorable and loved and perhaps the success of the book can be attributed to the same.

    The cover shows Tina Fey, pretty face morphed around huge, hairy hands; perhaps symbolizing Tina Fey’s success in a field dominated by males. The book is divided into personal essays that tell her life’s story, her personal and professional successes and her relationships with the people in her life. Her essay “A Mother’s Prayer” is insightful and shows Tina in a sweet image that often gets blurred by the smart and witty image that is often portrayed. She talks about growing up, her relationship with her brother, being a nerd in school, how she came to live in New York, her sweet and warm relation with her husband and the complete shift from a glamorous life to one of running after her children and eating things off the floor.

    It’s a treat for any of her fans as they see the real person behind the name. She also talks about how being slashed by a stranger in an alley behind her childhood house gave her the much talked about facial scars.

    Bossypants isn’t a memoir. It is a treatise to the fact that being funny is much more important than being pretty.

    Bossypants has sold over a million copies in the US. It topped The New York Times Bestseller List and remained on top for five weeks after its release. Tina Fey also narrated the audio book version of the book that received a Grammy Nomination, and sold over 150,000 copies. The audio book is available on Audible.com.

    Brilliant book by a brilliant person

    Okay, this is a very biased review, because I am completely, 100% in love with Tina Fey, but this book is ideal. I generally don't like reading autobiographies, but this one has a very intimate air about it, as if Miss Fey sat you down on her couch and started telling you all her best stories. Yes, they're in no particular order, and yes, sometimes she seems to go off on a tangent and starts criticizing narrow minded fools for, well, being narrow minded fools ... but that's what makes the boo...

    A bit overrated

    I have always enjoyed Tina Fey's performance. Owing to that fact, I expected her book too would reflect her sense of comic relief and humor. As I read the book, I felt the chapters weren't connected well. As if you were being presented with certain aspects of her life but in bits and pieces which din't connect well. I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend. But that's my two cents.

    Very American book

    This is very American book. If you have to understand this, you must first know who Tina Fey is, should be aware of her work and must have her show. Otherwise you may not understand this book.
