Have you ever driven a limo for Justine Bateman? Danced in a Bob Dylan video? Auditioned for Studs? Stefanie Wilder-Taylor has, and she lived to tell about it. While reflecting on fame, success, and life in general, I'm Kind of a Big Deal outlines how she went from having a crush/fixation on a contestant on a TV dating show, to a career as a stand up comic, to writing for what sounds like one of the worst shows in history. Just when you're sure that you know what kind of funny essay will come next, she mixes it up with something sad, bittersweet, or personally revealing - all while never losing her deft touch with words.
I read an advanced review copy from Simon & Schuster Galley Grab.
