Girl Walks Into a Bar
Rachel Dratch was on Saturday Night Live for seven years.
When SNL's head writer Tina Fey created the pilot for 30-Rock--Dratch was cast as Jenna, a role that ultimately went to Jane Krakowski and resulted in a media-made semi-scandal.
And then ... well ...
What ever happened to Rachel Dratch?
Girl Walks Into a Bar is the answer to that question, and it's an answer that's both funny and endearing. If you're looking for raucous and irreverent comedy, ala Chelsea Handler--this is not that. But if you'd like a glimpse inside the mind of an upbeat and optimistic comedian who did not follow the SNL path to superstardom and is totally (no, seriously) cool with it, this is a quick and delightful read.
Though Dratch touches on her early years, when she first became enamored with SNL, she doesn't linger there. She offers us an awe-filled taste of what it was like behind-the-scenes at SNL, and then ventures forth into the real world, where her life has taken an unexpected but satisfying turn.
I like Rachel Dratch after reading this book, and I think you will too.
Childbirth is one of the most magical of life's experiences. And that's what Nashville's Lily Gillmor was hoping for, but what it turned into instead was an excruciatingly painful, life-altering ordeal. Gillmor had what she describes as a "regular" vaginal childbirth, but she experienced some tissue damage when her son was born.
