by Tina Fey
Pure Tina Fey gold. Loved it, can't remember laughing so hard reading a book. It's worth noting that the book is oddly structured, which I think was done deliberately. It is not your conventional memoir: It comprises of sketches of Fey's childhood memories, accounts of her professional success, admissions of parenting dilemmas and hilarious self help tips. The authorial voice is the one Fey carries throughout SNL and 30 Rock; witty, caring, snappy & self-depreciating most of the times. Love her in-your-face comments on gender equity at work and brutal honesty on motherhood (and breastfeeding). Finally, Tina Fey is a feminist AND funny as hell, but who would have thought that makes a hit-selling combo? Well Tina Fey is here to show you the way. I should add that the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I would have liked for it to be much longer!

Teat Nazis are a solely western upper-middle-class phenomenon occurring when highly ambitious women experience deprivation from outside modes of achievement. Their highest infestation pockets are in Brooklyn and Hollywood."|
