Comedian and star of The Office and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Ellie Kemper delivers a hilarious and uplifting collection of essays about one pale woman's journey from Midwestern na?f to Hollywood semi-celebrity to outrageously reasonable New Yorker. There comes a time in every sitcom actress's life when she is faced with the prospect of writing a book. When Ellie Kemper's number was up, she was ready. Contagiously cheerful, predictably wholesome, and mostly inspiring except for one essay about her husband's feet, My Squirrel Days is a funny, free-wheeling tour of Ellie's life?from growing up in suburban St. Louis with a vivid imagination and a crush on David Letterman to moving to Los Angeles and accidentally falling on Doris Kearns Goodwin. But those are not the only famous names dropped in this synopsis. Ellie will also share stories of inadvertently insulting Ricky Gervais at the Emmy Awards, telling Tina Fey that she has "great hair?really strong and thick," and offering a maxi pad to Steve Carell. She will take you back to her childhood as a nature lover determined to commune with squirrels, to her college career as a benchwarming field hockey player with no assigned position, and to her young professional days writing radio commercials for McDonald's but never getting paid. Ellie will guide you along her journey through adulthood, from unorganized bride to impatient wife to anxious mother who?as recently observed by a sassy hairstylist?"dresses like a mom." Well, sassy hairstylist, Ellie Kemper is a mom. And she has been dressing like it since she was four. Ellie has written for GQ , Esquire , The New York Times, McSweeney's, and The Onion . Her voice is the perfect antidote to the chaos of modern life. In short, she will tell you nothing you need to know about making it in show business, and everything you need to know about discreetly changing a diaper at a Cibo Express.… (mais)

Ellie Kemper writes about her journey from parts in public school plays to working professional as an actor television. Rather than a spicy tell all book, she focus on the basics of acting, auditions, and some famous people she has encountered. A quick read without the angst of an acting life. ( )

I guess I wasn't expecting as much as some other readers were, but I found this book thoroughly charming. There's nothing juicy or explosive about it; it's just a collection of humorous autobiographical anecdotes by a talented comedic writer. Each essay is titled with a one-word modifier ("Redhead," "Kimmy," etc.) and shares a story from her distant or more recent past. I thought the writing was very good and there were many laugh-out-loud moments. Her style reminded me of Dave Barry or David Sedaris: self-deprecating and ironic, sending up her own foibles and insecurities in a realistic and relatable way. Will this book change your life? Of course not. But will it brighten your day? Absolutely; and couldn't we all use a little bit of extra sunshine wherever we can get it? ( )

I had just finished The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, one of the funniest and more inspiring TV series that I've ever seen. I picked this up because of it, but this book has barely any content from that part of her life.

I imagine I would have hated Ellie Kemper in school. She seems to be the type of girl that always gets what she goes after with no meaningful obstacles or weaknesses. She wants to be a comedian, so she takes a few improv classes and bam, she's in the top touring troupe, auditioning for Saturday Night Live. She wants to be an actress so bam, she's on The Office (which I didn't even know). She wants to see squirrels from her treehouse so she can pretend she's a Disney Princess, she waits hours, motionless… and the squirrels come up to her.

Reminds me of Student Council students in high school. The ones who complain how tired they are… when they're the ones who signed up for a hundred activities in the first place.

So we come to the problem of a biography/memoir that stars a person with no conflict in their life. Whatever Ellie Kemper wanted to be, she became. Wife, actress, goofball, friend. Fortunately, when you read the auto-bio of a comedian, at least it's funny even if the material is boring. And this one is. I'm surprised how much of Kimmy Schmidt is in Ellie Kemper, if what she puts on paper is who she is in life. Even if there's not much about The Incredible Kimmy Schmidt, it feels like the book was written by her.

It's cute, maybe overly so, but the stories are good. It's better than Anna Kendrick's, but worse than Lindsey Stirling's. ( )
