Tales from the Star of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and The Office
Author: Ellie Kemper
Comedian and star of The Office and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Ellie Kemper delivers a hilarious, refreshing, and inspiring collection of essays “teeming with energy and full of laugh-out-loud moments” (Associated Press). “A pleasure. Ellie Kemper is the kind of stable, intelligent, funny, healthy woman that usually only exists in yogurt commercials. But she’s real and she’s all ours!” —Tina Fey “Ellie is a hilarious and talented writer, although we’ll never know how much of this book the squirrel wrote.”—Mindy Kaling Meet Ellie, the best-intentioned redhead next door. You’ll laugh right alongside her as she shares tales of her childhood in St. Louis, whether directing and also starring in her family holiday pageant, washing her dad’s car with a Brillo pad, failing to become friends with a plump squirrel in her backyard, eating her feelings while watching PG-13 movies, or becoming a “sports monster” who ends up warming the bench of her Division 1 field hockey team in college. You’ll learn how she found her comedic calling in the world of improv, became a wife, mother and New Yorker, and landed the role of a bridesmaid (while simultaneously being a bridesmaid) in Bridesmaids. You’ll get to know and love the comic, upbeat, perpetually polite actress playing Erin Hannon on The Office, and the exuberant, pink-pants-wearing star of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. If you’ve ever been curious about what happens behind the scenes of your favorite shows, what it really takes to be a soul cycle “warrior,” how to recover if you accidentally fall on Doris Kearns Goodwin or tell Tina Fey on meeting her for the first time that she has “great hair—really strong and thick,” this is your chance to find out. But it’s also a laugh-out-loud primer on how to keep a positive outlook in a world gone mad and how not to give up on your dreams. Ellie “dives fully into each role—as actor, comedian, writer, and also wife and new mom—with an electric dedication, by which one learns to reframe the picture, and if not exactly become a glass-half-full sort of person, at least become able to appreciate them” (Vogue.com).

“Headlines about "Strange and Startling Deaths In Brooklyn," threw a chill through the riverfront communities close to the discoveries of body parts that were discovered in several places around the community. Fear began to envelope the entire Borough of Brooklyn. And police investigators were without clues as to the events that seem to heading to an even more deadly conclusion. Mangled body parts turned up in several areas of Brooklyn and rumors about unreported findings began to spread way beyond the Borough's borders. Even bustling Manhattan, no stranger to murders, was placed on high alert. Ten murders in as many weeks, all committed with a hatchet-like tool, and officials had no clues or suspects for the killings. More badly decomposed body parts continued to be found, some of which were discovered in a long abandoned tunnel not far from Bensonhurst creating a panic among residents of that community. Murders were not common in this neighborhood, even though the residents had a more than a casual familiarity with infamous mob figures that lived in and/or visited this area for years. However, no vicious crimes had been reported in this subtly protected area, until now. Can it be these discoveries were related to mob activities that went sour unexpectedly, or was it the beginning of a gang war of epic proportions?”
