Publisher's 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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Diary of a Mad Diva to be better than the print version?

Yes, I like to hear her voice and her expressions of her own words. She is so committed to giving her fans the best. She had to read it to us.

What does Joan Rivers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she brings her words to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

She will be missed.

Can we NOT talk?

Any additional comments?

I love Joan Rivers and I'm sad that she's no longer with us.
But this book is awful...actually, this audio book is awful.
I only made til March in her "diary" before I called it quits.
And I NEVER quit a book.
If you like recycled jokes and outdated pop references (Sunny Von Bulow...Nancy Kerrigan...Monica Lewinsky) then this book may be for you.
For the record, nothing really offends me...I get this type of humor and like it...but not when it's not funny. 2 jokes about JFK getting his head blown off...really?
