This week I've started Tina Fey's Bossypants. Here's the first paragraph after the introduction:
My brother is eight years old that I am. I was a big surprise. A wonderful surprise, my mom would be quick to tell you. ALthough having a baby at forty is a commonplace fool's errand these days, back in 1970 it was pretty unheard-of. Women around my mom's office referred to her pregnancy as "Mrs. Fey and her change-of-life baby." When I was born I was fussed over and doted on, and my brother has always looked out for me like a third parent.
I was excited to start this book because I think Tina Fey is hilarious. The book is a little bland though. Some parts I can hear her voice and picture her saying them, which adds to the fun. Others, well, it might be like me writing my biography. Not that many people will be interested.
What do you think? Have you read it? Are you going to?
