    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....

    Overall

    Bossypants is a fabulous audiobook--perhaps one of those books that is just as good, or better, in audio form than on the page (and I, a devout page-reader, say that very seldom.) Tina Fey herself narrates, so the tone is spot-on, and the content here is not just funny, but also very, very smart, self-reflective, and in places, quite moving.

    What surprised and gratified me most about this book is how skilled a memoirist Fey turns out to be. It's not just a collection of funny anecdotes--she brings a clear-eyed, frank, and nuanced eye to fraught matters of race, class, sexuality, and political differences, and she doesn't let herself off the hook in the process. Highlights of the narration, for me: her job at the YMCA in Chicago, the Palin impersonation period during the 2008 elections, and the arrival of her daughter. But the whole thing is really a treat. Listened to it on a long road trip and it carried me through.
