    Dex works as a gardener for Dr Jefferson at his home on Hexam Place in Pimlico: an exclusive street inhabited by the rich, and serviced by the not so rich. The hired help, a motley assortment of au pairs, drivers and cleaners, decide to form the St Zita Society (Zita was the patron saint of domestic servants) as an excuse to meet at the pub and air their grievances. When Dex is invited to one of these meetings, the others find that he is a strange man, ill at ease with human beings....

    (13031)

    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....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No I can honestly say so. I kept hoping it would get better. I think one must know about this person to fully enjoy her story. i don't.


    What was most disappointing about Tina Fey???s story?

    See above coment.


    How could the performance have been better?

    She is ?? very fast talker. Slow it up ?? bit. If she makes ?? point. Let it sink in ?? bit for the listener.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
