    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    Story

    I read People magazine, so I knew how this story ended. Yet I couldn't stop listening because I wanted to find out what happened next in this hilarious and well-written memoir.

    I was afraid that once she finished writing about her Second City and SNL experiences that the book might drag. But I enjoyed the stories about how she met her "baby Daddy" and the eventual birth of her son just as much as the showbiz stories.

    I also thought that no memoir could make me laugh as hard as Tina Fey's memoir. But this one is just as funny and Dratch reads it beautifully. It's a hilarious, yet touching and sweet story that I highly recommend!

    One more thing: I usually can't listen to audiobooks when I drive because they lull me to sleep. But this one kept me wide awake and left me wanting more when I finished it. I hope she'll write a sequel!
