100 Books in 2012: Bossypants by Tina Fey

Book 24:  Bossypants by Tina Fey

A lot funny, a little crude, a little serious, this is the autobiography of Tina Fey, chronicling her introduction to theater in high school (where everyone was accepted and yes, there were gays) through her work with Saturday Night Live (Lorne Michael is a god) and 30 Rock (where they were determined to have Alec Baldwin come hell or high water!). 

Since Fey is my age, I appreciated the references and could relate to her growing up in the 1980s.  She relates her story with much humor, although sometimes a little crudely and with profanity.  It's a quick and amusing read about an aspiring writer who does well for herself.
