More About My Squirrel Days by Ellie Kemper; Ellie Kemper
 
 
 
Overview
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

"If you're at all a Kemper fan already (I am, a lot), you will freaking love this audiobook...Listeners will be smitten with her grace and work ethic, and even her tendency to lose herself in the mean reds when hungry. Though I've never met her, after listening to My Squirrel Days, I feel confident in saying that Ellie Kemper is my best friend O.K., maybe that's a bit extreme, and creepy, but she's definitely someone I would love to sit next to on a transcontinental flight." --The New York Times Book Review

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).
