Product Details


“Melissa [Rivers] weaves together anecdotes, memories, speeches, lists and advice to create a sweet, personal narrative infused with Joan’s trademark wit… Like any great standup comedian’s act, the short chapters keep the audience wanting more, and her writing echoes her mother’s self-deprecating, saucy tone.”—Associated Press

“Melissa [Rivers] has written a book, cleverly weaving Mom’s material into a bittersweet biography of their life together.”—People

“Joan Rivers famously asked, ‘Can we talk?’ So the question for her daughter, Melissa Rivers…is ‘Can she write?’ The answer is, clearly, yes.” —Newsday
“We have a winner. Oh yes we do. Of all the celebrity memoirs to have appeared in the last few months, we have from way back in the pack, the one that made an incredible stretch run to become the unquestioned leader…If there are any smart mothers out there notable for their outspoken candor and their pop cultural literacy, Melissa Rivers’ book will take care of their early summer reading needs quite nicely.” —The Buffalo News
“Very funny” —Page Six
