Just the funny parts

Just the funny parts: ...and a few hard truths bout sneaking into the Hollywood boys' club / Nell Scovell, read by Amy Hohn,  326 pgs.

Nell Scovell has had a successful career writing for TV and movies despite being a WOMAN.  She tells of being the only women in the writers room...pretty much forever.  It is really illuminating to hear about what goes on behind the scene at some of your favorite shows.  Nell has a wonderful way of discussing some prickly topics without over-reacting or bringing too much drama.  I found the development of some comedic ideas fascinating and enjoyed hearing many of her jokes that didn't make the cut in the final product.  The audio book is ably read by Amy Hohn.
