Publisher's Summary

The definitive audiobook about Joan Rivers' tumultuous, victorious, tragic, hilarious, and fascinating life.
Joan Rivers was more than a legendary comedian; she was an icon and a role model to millions, a fearless pioneer who left a legacy of expanded opportunity when she died in 2014. Her 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' career was also hugely significant in American cultural history, breaking down barriers for her gender and pushing the boundaries of truth-telling for women in public life.
A juicy, intimate biography of one of the greatest comedians ever - a performer whose 60-year career was born, simply, out of a desire to make people laugh so she could feel loved - Last Girl Before Freeway delves into the inner workings of a woman who both reflected and redefined the world around her.

Been there said that

What made the experience of listening to Last Girl Before Freeway the most enjoyable?

It seemed like a compendium of Ms Rivers own works. I kept thinking "Wait I have heard this before." Skip the book if you have read Ms Rivers books because you have heard it before .. from Joan.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

She died .. duh

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
