I finished Lizz Free Or Die a few weeks ago, and I've found myself telling bits and pieces of it to friends since. The book is a collection of autobiographical essays about Lizz Winstead's life and career, and while it isn't the next Bossypants, it is a very good read. I chose it because I love The Daily Show and knew she was one of the original creators, but I really didn't know anything else about her. Unfortunately, she left before Jon Stewart joined The Daily Show and she really glossed over her reasons for leaving, so it wasn't a very satisfying "behind-the-scenes look" for fans of the show. I found that I was more interested in her childhood and her family than in her career, and those essays were some of the funniest and most touching. I was fascinated by Winstead's Minnesota Catholic family. She has a whole essay about creepy Catholic iconography called "Decorate to Manipulate", as well as one about the disappointment and confusion she felt upon learning that she could not be an altar boy just because she's a girl. The whole book is a good celebrity memoir mix of origin story, self-deprecating humor, name dropping (she was roommates with Michele Norris in Minneapolis, she discovered Rachel Maddow, she's friends with Sarah Silverman), and undeniable talent.
