Publisher's Summary

Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this audibook, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value - as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she's as controversial, original, and funny as ever.
Raised half-Jewish, half-Mormon, and 100-percent misfit, Roseanne made a deal with Satan early on as the price she paid for stardom. But now she's looking to refinance the loan of her soul - this book represents her final exorcism of fame.
Displaying her brilliance and sharp wit, Roseanne discusses the humor of everyday life with musings on more serious topics, such as class warfare, feminism, the cult of celebrity, and Kabbalah. Bold, brash, and insightful, Roseannearchy shows that she can still skewer any subject under the sun and why The New York Times describes her appeal as the power of a whole planet, pulling everything around it inexorably into its orbit.

.....by all means get "Roseannearchy". It tells a more complete story of who she is, why she made her infamous choices, the price she paid, and why she'd do it again in a heartbeat. If you are a fan of Roseanne, hearing her tell her story is icing on the cake. If you aren't a fan of hers, but you crave strong, fearless women, this audiobook will satisfy your appetite.

Irreverent, deliciously funny!!

I have to say I enjoyed this book immensely. I couldn't stop listening to it all the way to the very end. I laughed at myself and enjoyed hearing all the hard times she went through. It made me feel so not alone. I never really new Roseanne, but now that I do I
wish I could spend an afternoon on the "Nut Farm" talking with her and drinking wine
and enjoying the "Mule" watching the pigs!
