"These characters are nuanced and the writing just pulls you into the story. I feel like I have a portal into 1920s London and Kenya and New York in 1999. I am torn between finding out what happens immediately and savoring the story by reading only a chapter or two at a time. I only started reading it on Tuesday night (today is Thursday) and I am nearly finished!" Apr 10, 2014 10:43AM

Tina Fey
“I only hope that one day I can frighten my daughter this much. Right now, she's not scared of my husband or me at all. I think it's a problem. I was a freshman home from college the first time my dad said, "You're going out at ten p.m.? I don't think so," and I just laughed and said, "It's fine." I feel like my daughter will be doing that to me by age six.

How can I give her what Don Fey gave me? The gift of anxiety. The fear of getting in trouble. The knowledge that while you are loved, you are not above the law. The Worldwide Parental Anxiety System is failing if this many of us have made sex tapes.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Chelsea Handler
“Have you ever experienced a pain so sharp in your heart that it's all you can do to take a breath? It's a pain you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy; you wouldn't want to pass it on to anyone else for fear he or she might not be able to bear it. It's the pain of being betrayed by a person with whom you've fallen in love. It's not as serious as death, but it feels a whole lot like it, and as I've come to learn, pain is pain any way you slice it.”
Chelsea Handler, My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands

Tina Fey
“I was ten. I had noticed something was weird earlier in the day, but I knew from commercials that one's menstrual period was a blue liquid that you poured like laundry detergent onto maxi pads to test their absorbency. This wasn't blue, so...I ignored it for a few hours.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

“Never tell a crazy person he’s crazy.”

Tina Fey
“Lesson learned? When people say, "You really, really must" do something, it means you don't really have to. No one ever says, "You really, really must deliver the baby during labor." When it's true, it doesn't need to be said.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants
