Continental Drift 1/8/2018: The Best Book I've (Re)Read Lately.

Bossypants is Tina Fey's autobiography.  Originally published in 2012, it's a book I reread at least on an annual basis because it makes me laugh out loud, press pause on my own life and just relish Tina's writing.

The theme that resonates with me most in 'Bossypants' is Tina's growing sense of self as self acceptance as she grows and changes (for the better) with each memory she shares in the book.  Tina manages to make self deprecation hilariously funny but also painfully close to the bone.

Fame and the trappings that go with life as an American celebrity are given the slightest reference here and there in 'Bossypants' because the book's focus is people and Tina's keen eye for observing and at times mercilessly parodying them.  However there are also moments of great love, empathy and respect when it comes to Tina's homage to some of the most important and treasured people in her life.

Is there a book that you can count on to make you laugh out loud every time you pick it up?

  3. I think you, me and Bo need to read each others recommendations for a post in Jan or Feb. I would never have thought of reading this book at all.
