Whether you knew her as the host of E! Network's Fashion Police, the bestselling author of books like Diary of a Mad Diva, from her stand-up comedy, her QVC collection, or from her appearances on the red carpet; you are probably aware that Joan Rivers was one of the most outspoken and funniest women that Hollywood has ever seen. Joan was known all over the world--from the Palace Theater to Buckingham Palace, from the bright lights of Vegas to the footlights of Broadway. But there was only one person who knew Joan intimately--not as a TV star or a famous celebrity--her daughter, Melissa Rivers. Joan and Melissa shared one of the most complicated, crazy, hilarious, yet loving mother-daughter relationships of all time. If you think Joan said some outrageous things to her audiences as a comedian, you won't believe some of the things she said to Melissa! Now, in The Book of Joan, Melissa is ready to share it all--the lessons her mother taught her, both good and bad (how to be a survivor, why it's good to pose for Playboy); the anecdotes from family life, life on the road, and working together, as well as remembrances from some of Joan's friends; and Joan's philosophies about parenting, grandparenting, and much, much more.
