Book Description
Whether she’s driving a limo for former Family Ties star Justine Bateman, dancing in the dark for a rarely seen Bob Dylan music video, or stalking a bachelor reject from TV’s Love Connection, Wilder-Taylor is kind of a big deal - at least in her own mind. Smart, screwy, and scathingly funny, her tell-all essays capture every moment of kind-of famous life.

From bombing as a stand-up comic for born-again Christians, to winging it as a singing waitress in an Italian restaurant, to posting open letters to Angelina Jolie and David Hasselhoff, this unstoppable L.A. transplant refuses to give up on her dreams - no matter how ill-advised - and shows us a side of Hollywood better kept hidden. When it comes to funny women - unplugged and unleashed - they don't get any wilder than Stefanie-Wilder-Taylor...

My Review
I'm Kind of a Big Deal: And Other Delusions of Adequacy by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is a hilarious collection of essays that follow the author's journey to becoming a writer. Along the way, she struggles to make it as an actress and a comic. She discusses her problems with alcohol and with trying to have a relationship with her father. Her essays are smart and funny, with a tell-all honesty that is impressive. Ms. Wilder-Taylor writes about serious issues with a wry sense of humor that makes her book is a worthwhile read.

I Am Kind of a Big Deal is new this month from Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster.
