Bossypants is a book from Tina Fey which is the collection of the essays where she shares different experiences of life. These experiences range from juggling the roles of working mother to navigating the male dominated world of sketch comedy. In this book, the author provides a witty as well as personal account of her life both privately and professionally. She digs into her childhood, growing up in an average American family and her journey as a kid with little facial abnormality. This book is considered as one of the best memoirs of the recent times.
Readers has also got the perception into the steps Tina Fey took to harness her talent for writing as well as performing. She has shared the details about her wedding, parenthood and her adventures in the entertainment industry. All the people, jobs and the moments that she encountered throughout her life come together in this book, painting a detailed picture of how she evolved into unusual and successful woman that we know now a days.
In addition to her wit, Tina Fey’s writing demonstrates her self-assurance and a healthy awareness of the excess and eccentricities of show business, particularly the TV industry. Her life story may be relatable to those who have participated in community theater or who have grown up with gay friends. She is very appreciative of her coworkers and collaborators.
For audiobooks, in my opinion, autobiographies are perfect. It is more enjoyable to listen to the author recount their life story than to read the actual book because it adds a special dimension to the experience. Her impressions are a standout in Tina Fey’s “Bossypants,” frequently producing amusing moments (keep an ear out for her Alec Baldwin impression). Her innate storytelling talent and sense of humor are evident in this delightful audiobook.
