Comedy and Humor are not exactly my strong point – I go for dark and depressing anytime so I’m even more impressed when somebody manages to tickle my humor gene.
Tina Fey definitely is one of the few people who manages to do that. „Bossypants“ was a huge surprise for me. I didn’t know a lot about her, would probably not have bought the book but finding it in a free little library was brilliant.
“You could put a blond wig on a hot-water heater and some dude would try to fuck it.”
It’s not just funny but surprisingly full of very clever ideas, insights and I would never have expected to underline that many paragraphs.
I remember telling my bookclub about it and somehow the understood I was raving about a biography of Sarah Palin – you should have see the faces.
Everybody all quiet for a moment, stunned looks on their faces and I could nearly hear them think „how do we explain that naive German girl that Sarah Palin is actually a pretty awful person and nobody who we had hoped you feel the urge to underline every second sentence she wrote.
How happy they were when I explained „Nooo I’m reading a book by Tina Fey who IMPERSONATED Palin“
So which book do you turn to when in need for a good laugh ?
