BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND TELEVISION STAR ROSEANNE BARR IS BACK—WITH A VENGEANCE—AND THE RESULT IS ROSEANNEARCHY.
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 return to the printed page, 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.”
This book is amazing! Roseanne Barr is a brilliant talent who wears many hats, storyteller is one of them! Could not put this book down! Read it in two days! Ms.Barr tells it like it is and opens your eyes on the world we live in. If only we all could think like her, the world would be a better place!
Roseanne went there! She went there and came back with much to share. Where all other channels of information have truly failed,just ask John Stewart. Roseanne brings us her bigger then life goddess channeled vision of truth. She is a bittersweet generous woman. She didn't have to...but I'm sure at one point she just had to let the gates open. Thank you Roseanne. I look forward to seeing your new show ..Roseannastanly..
Reading this book was like reading something I wrote, mirrored image of my thoughts! Rosanne has always been a favorite of mine, I never missed a show of "Roseanne" growing up! This is the first book of hers I've read, and plan on reading her other funny, truthful, and in your face literature! Thanks Rosanne!!
