Warm, wise, wickedly funny, and sometimes just deliciously wicked
March 21, 2018
What a warm, wise, wickedly funny, and sometimes just deliciously wicked book this is. I loved learning the connection between so many and varied shows I have enjoyed -- it's writer Nell Scovell, who worked on/at so many of my favorites from "The Simpsons" to Spy Magazine to Murphy Brown to President Obama's brilliantly funny WHCD speech. Slate Magazine recently paid tribute to the wonderful "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," which was Scovell's show, and her behind-the-scenes stories of what she did to make the show relatable, grounded, and, yes, feminist while still keeping it light-hearted are in one of my favorite chapters. Scovell is frank about her own choices, good and bad, and understated but devastating about her #metoo moments. This is a smart, timely, and important book but most of all it is so much fun to read.
