Summary
Joan Rivers's "life was a dramatic roller-coaster of triumphant highs and devastating lows: the suicide of her husband, her feud with Johnny Carson, her estrangement from her daughter, her many plastic surgeries, her ferocious ambition, and her massive insecurities. But Rivers's career was also ... significant in American cultural history, breaking down barriers for her gender and pushing the boundaries of truth-telling for women in public life. [This] biography ... delves into the inner workings of a woman who both reflected and redefined the world around her"--Amazon.com
