Bossypants is an autobiographical comedy book written by American comedienne Tina Fey. The book topped The New York Times Best Seller list, and stayed there for five weeks upon its release. Since its release, the book has sold over one million copies in the U.S. Fey's Grammy nominated narration of the audio book has sold over 150,000 copies on Audible.com. A paperback reprint edition was released in January 2012, from Reagan Arthur Books, an imprint of Little, Brown.
In 2008, the prospect of a Tina Fey book was reportedly the subject of a bidding war among publishers which lead to an advance of $6 million. As part of her deal with Little, Brown & Co., a gift was made to the New York based Books for Kids Foundation.
Janet Maslin for The New York Times calls Bossypants "a spiky blend of humor, introspection, critical thinking and Nora Ephron-isms for a new generation." Katie Roiphe for Slate is favorable toward the humor in Bossypants, especially how Fey wields jokes as a personal display of power.
