Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.
She has seen both these dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon -- from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina is delightful. Her book is witty and fun. I enjoyed it.
Actress, and writer, Tina Fey writes her memoir with a little whining and humor. I loved Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live and have been a fan of her movies, so I was eager to listen to this audiobook. Listening to Fey talk about her childhood and knowing where she is at now in her life, seems to me...
Tina Fey's audio narration was a great companion on my runs these past couple of days. I just wish I hadn't run out (so to speak) of book 7 miles into a 10-mile run today. I'd even taken the precaution of downloading my next audiobook, but I ran into technical difficulties when attempting the trans...
