Spirited and whip-smart, these laugh-out-loud autobiographical essays are "a masterpiece" from the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedy writer known for 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and SNL" (Sunday Telegraph). 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 always 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!

Review quote

PRAISE FOR TINA FEY: "You'd be really pretty if you lost weight."--College Boyfriend, 1990 "Totally worth it."--Trees "Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, overrated troll."--The Internet "Mommy, where are my pretzels?"--Tracy Morgan "Hilarious and insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny -- oh no, a full moon. No! Arrgh! Get away from me! Save yourself!"--A Guy Turning into a Werewolf "Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey's book until I've been dead a hundred years."--Mark Twain "Absolutely delicious!"--A Guy Who Eats Books Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.--- ADVANCE PRAISE FOR BOSSYPANTS "I hope that's not really the cover. That's really going to hurt sales."--Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey
