Seven hilarious books by very funny women

At the B&N Reads blog Molly Schoemann-McCann tagged seven hilarious books by funny women, including:
Bossypants, by Tina Fey

No list of funny female authors is complete without the inimitable Tina Fey. Yes, Bossypants makes it onto lots of must-read lists, but there’s a reason why. This self-deprecating memoir produces uproarious laughter, which is something to keep in mind if you’re on a crowded train or in a quiet waiting room. In Bossypants, Fey details her lukewarm college love life, her early years of improv and working at the Y, her admission into the ranks of SNL, and her disastrous honeymoon. She also dishes plenty on the battle of the sexes, her unorthodox style of parenting, and best friends (see: Amy Poehler). An absolute requirement for your shelf of comedy she-roes.

Bossypants is among Whitney Collins's six top books by comedy queens, Jennifer Keishin Armstrong's five best books on the business of television, and Matt Kraus's seven great autobiographies by entertainers. Deborah Netburn recommended Bossypants and four other books to Natalie Portman when the Oscar-winning actor became a new mother in 2011. It is one of Randi Zuckerberg's six favorite books.
