The Book of Joan by Melissa Rivers

Melissa Rivers wrote a beautiful, not to mention hilarious, book about her mother,  the one and only, Joan Rivers. Melissa recalls what it was like growing up as Joan River's daughter and all the good times they had together. 

I really enjoyed this book because Joan was real. She hated sports, but loved the Kentucky Derby. She couldn't spell, but she insisted on proper punctuation.She broke the rules, but demanded good manners. How many of us are just like that? 

Melissa's writing style is relaxed, and it's as if  you are sitting right in front of discussing her mother. She describes her mother as the Manipulator. Melissa manages to write about her mother, poking fun at her, yet at the same time displaying great affection for her.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Anyone who enjoyed Joan back in the day should definitely read this. Plus, I liked the cover.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
