Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” nears top of Amazon bestseller list

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Comedienne Tina Fey has shown her talent once again with the success of “Bossypants”, a memoir that released on April 5th. The book is currently ranked #4 on Amazon and has spent 33 days on the Amazon Top 100.
Says Kevin Nguyen’s “Amazon Best Books of the Month” April review of “Bossypants”, “Tina Fey remains universally adored: she embodies the hectic, too-many-things-to-juggle lifestyle we all have, but instead of complaining about it, she can just laugh it off.” The actress-slash-writer-slash-comedienne draws from her experiences not only as a professional but as a mother. Continues, Nguyen, “Some of the funniest chapters feature the differences between male and female comedy writers (“men urinate in cups”), her cruise ship honeymoon (“it’s very Poseidon Adventure”), and advice about breastfeeding (“I had an obligation to my child to pretend to try”). “
A Saturday Night Live writer since the late 1990s and a cast member from 2000 to 2005, Fey left the show for pursuits including the comedy series “30 Rock”, and movies “Date Night” and “Baby Mama”. Fey is also well-known for penning the screenplay for the 2004 film “Mean Girls”, for which a sequel was recently released. She announced her pregnancy on an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, on which she appeared to promote “Bossypants”—during her upcoming appearance as host on SNL, she will be expecting her second child.
