Skip to main content. You are here Home. By Melissa Rivers. Description This New York Times bestseller is a hilarious and inspiring tribute to the iconic comedian Joan Rivers by the person who knew her best--her daughter, Melissa. Joan and Melissa Rivers had one of the most celebrated mother-daughter relationships of all time. If you think Joan said some outrageous things to her audiences as a comedian, you won't believe what she said and did in private. Her love for her daughter knew no bounds--or boundaries, apparently.
Maybe I'm just prejudiced, but I really liked this book. I love Joan Rivers and miss her and her comedy. I decided I would read all of the books Joan wrote, so I started searching local thrift stores for those. This book, written by Melissa, just never crossed my mind, however, my husband decided this would make a good birthday present, and it did! Melissa tells lots of great stories about her mother. Some funny and some sad. I'm sure it was a hard thing for Melissa to write these essays.
Joan Rivers was known all over the world—from the Palace Theater to Buckingham Palace, from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the footlights of Broadway, from the days of talkies to hosting talk shows. But there was only one person who knew Joan intimately, one person who the authorities would call when she got a little out of hand. Her daughter and best friend, Melissa. Joan and Melissa Rivers had one of the most celebrated mother-daughter relationships of all time. Her love for her daughter knew no bounds—or boundaries, apparently.
