Summary:

Winner of the 2015 Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album

Following up the phenomenal success of her headline-making New York Times bestseller I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me, the unstoppable Joan Rivers is at it again. When her daughter Melissa gives her a diary for Christmas, at first Joan is horrified—who the hell does Melissa think she is? That fat pig, Bridget Jones? But as Joan, being both beautiful and introspective, begins to record her day-to-day musings, she realizes she has a lot to say. About everything. And everyone, God help them.

The result? A no-holds-barred, delightfully vicious and always hilarious look at the everyday life of the ultimate diva. Follow Joan on a family vacation in Mexico and on trips between New York and Los Angeles where she mingles with the stars, never missing a beat as she delivers blistering critiques on current events, and excoriating insights about life, pop culture, and celebrities (from A to D list), all in her relentlessly funny signature style.

This is the Diary of a Mad Diva. Forget about Anais Nin, Anne Frank, and that whiner Sylvia Plath. For the first time in a century, a diary by someone that’s actually worth reading.

Genres:

  • Gabrielle L

    It doesn't seem authentic. It seems that she wrote in a diary for a year knowing she'd publish it or simply created a diary to publish. I mean maybe she does write in her diary like that. If so I'd love part 1, 2, 3 etc lol but I doubt they exist

  • Ivan Boyraz

    Arguably one of the best female comedians. Not only entertains it is also informative on aspects of social culture. Instead of just buying books on the the psychology of happiness this one is going to make you laugh.

  • Amanda Mandella

    She used to be funny. This just seems like the rantings a of an old lady, deeply insecure in her age, seeking the shock factor. RIP Joan, I hope you're young again, for God's sake!
