Today I was so engrossed in my book that I missed the midnight deadline. I have backdated this post which is kind of cheating but I know you will forgive me, dear reader!
The book in question was “Bossypants” by Tina Fey, which can be described as a memoir rather than an autobiography. It was a series of anecdotes interspersed with tips and guidelines directed at women drawn from the author’s experience – from adolescence, dating, fashion and makeup to working in the male dominated world of comedy.
I found it very funny, but was unable to connect with some parts of the book because, although I am aware of Saturday Night Live, I have never seen it and some of the names mentioned are unfamiliar. I am a big fan of 30Rock, though, and understand the connections between the two shows.
I am hoping that the marvellous Ms Fey will inspire my own writing.
