Book review: Bossypants by Tina Fey

Goodreads ⭐ Amazon ⭐

I think Tina Fey is hilarious. Mean Girls. Saturday Night Live. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The couple of 30 Rock episodes I’ve actually seen. (It’s on my list, okay?) Other things I’ve seen her in that I currently can’t remember the names of. As a comedy writer and actress, she’s amazing. But this book? It had its highlights, but overall, I was disappointed.

There are a number of legitimately, laugh-out-loud hilarious sections. The part about how you can tell how much New Yorkers like things based on how disgusted they are is absolutely true and very funny. I live in New Jersey, and it’s the same here. But there are other sections that are flat-out racist. Or mean-spirited. And large chunks are just… boring.

Celebrity memoirs are hit or miss. I still love Tina Fey, even if I didn’t love her book. On to the next.
