Tina Fey Set to Rock

Tina Fey‘s memoir Bossypants is set to dominate the media next week, after not just one but two excerpts in The New Yorker. The star of TV’s 30 Rock has also done an interview with In Style, in which she discusses how she juggles acting, screenwriting, producing and being a mother.

Reviewing the book in Slate, Katie Roiphe praises Fey for cutting her way through the male-dominated comedy world with “tough feminism” delivered with humor.
