I Am the New Black, Tracy Morgan with Anthony Bozza (Spiegel & Grau) 

Somtimes fun reading, just avoid the comedian's life lessons.

Brilliant at times, nonsensical, poorly written and (sometimes) funny, I Am the New Black is about what you'd expect from a Tracy Morgan autobiography. Each moment of candidness (the cessation of his relationship with his mother) and tragedy (the AIDS-related death of Morgan's father) is matched by a reflective moment in which Morgan passes on a life lesson to his fans. The book is uneven, picking up steam when Morgan writes frankly about aspects of his life that fans want to know about---his time on SNL and his less-than-shining past---but then slams into a wall when Morgan tries to impart his wisdom. An entertaining read, but only finishable by Morgan fans.

Should Nova Scotia revisit its fracking ban now that an Energy Department analysis has found $20 billion worth of natural gas offshore?

  • Frack, baby, frack!
  • No amount of money is worth the environmental damage
  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
