In this side-splitting memoir, the former Saturday Night
Live star recounts the hilarious adventures and unexpected
joy of dating and becoming a mother when she least expected
it-at the age of forty-four.
Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between

of the "happily ever after" story that proves female
comics-like bestsellers Tina Fey and Chelsea Handler-are
truly having their moment.
