Along the way, Kathy reveals intimate details about her life before and after she made the big time. She opens up about everything from growing up with a dysfunctional family in suburban Illinois to bombing as a young comedian in L.A., from her well-publicized plastic surgery disasters to her highly publicized divorce, and more. Only in this book will you learn how the dinner table is the best training ground for a career in stand-up, how speaking your mind can bite you on the ass and buy you a house, and which people in Kathy's life have taught her the most valuable lessons - both inside and outside the entertainment industry.
Refreshingly candid and full of hilarious "Did she really say that?" moments.

HONESTY Is WHAT MAKES KATHY SO "HUGE"!
Love the honesty and no holding back on anything authenticity of Kathy Griffin! The good, bad and the ugly!

Feels like Kathy is talking, not reading, to you
Would you listen to Official Book Club Selection again? Why?
Absolutely. Kathy tells a lot of stories within her story and its impossible to catch all of the details on the first pass. I listened to a few chapters more than once on my first pass through the book, and laughed harder each time. I also teared up, too, but most of Kathy's stories aren't too heavy.
What other book might you compare Official Book Club Selection to and why?
Happy Accidents: A Memoir (by Jane Lynch) is what I am listening to now and is definitely a book you could compare to "Official Book Club Selection" basically becuase they are both memoir's of comedic women in Hollywood. However, unlike Kathy, Jane is reading her book to you; Kathy is having a conversation with you except she can't you talking back. LOL!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was definitely a book I would have listened to all at once if I ever had that kind of time. You cannot get bored by Kathy's stories and because its conversational, you never tire of her voice since its constantly changing while she tells her story and full of emotion.
