Author: by Tina Fey
Published at: Back Bay Books; 0 edition (January 3, 2012)
Spirited and whip-smart, these laugh-out-loud autobiographical essays are “a masterpiece” from the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedy writer known for 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and SNL” (Sunday Telegraph). 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 Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve always suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy. Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!

The beloved show Friends introduced the world to six young New Yorkers living together, falling in love, breaking up (cue Ross’s “We were on a break!”), and getting into hilarious shenanigans, which became an instant classic formula that inspired dozens of “hangout sitcoms” long after the show’s reign.
But no sitcom has ever come close to the series that started it all, spawning iconic looks like “the Rachel” and timeless catchphrases like “How you doin’?” while creating a cultural sensation that catapulted the cast members to instant mega-stardom.
Throughout the show’s ten- season run, viewers watched Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler, and Joey navigate their twenties and thirties with unwavering friendship, determination, and, of course, plenty of sarcasm. Friends Forever takes fans back to the set where it all began with exclusive photos of the sitcom that won four Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, eleven People’s Choice Awards, and a Golden Globe for Jennifer Aniston for Best Lead Actress in a Television Series.
