Can We Talk? 4 of Joan Rivers Most Hilarious Books

We are passionate readers who love nothing more than discovering fantastic books and sharing them with friends. We recommend books that move us to laughter and tears—and everything in between. Trust us when we say, "You've got to read this!"

Love her or hate her, Joan Rivers was a force of nature. NO ONE on late-night TV is funnier than she was, and no one enjoyed themselves more. Between playing Vegas, dishing on Fashion Police, doing stand-up at the Laurie Beechman Theatre and filming one of the best documentaries in recent memory, she found time to write quite a few books. Her older titles are out of print or hard to find, but we expect that to change given the recent high interest in her backlist titles. We’ve listed our recent favorites for you here, in no particular order. Ms. Rivers, wherever you are: we wish you’d had more time, and thank you so much for the laughter.

I Hate Everyone...Starting with Me
by Joan Rivers

The title pretty much sums it up. Ms. Rivers lays waste to everyone and everything in her path on the pop culture landscape. Just imagine her voice reading this aloud. It's really vulgar, be warned, but if that's OK with you...you're in for one of the funniest reads of your life.

Men Are Stupid . . . And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman's Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery
by Joan Rivers

As usual, she speaks the truth: Ms. Rivers offers her hilarious take on better grooming through cosmetic surgery. She never shied away from how much work she had. It just makes sense to learn the mechanics from an old pro!

Diary of a Mad Diva
by Joan Rivers

This is Ms. Rivers' most recent title, published barely 2 months before she passed away. Her daughter, Melissa, gave her a diary to fill. And Ms. Rivers does what she does best, day by day. She's doing her best raunchy shtick here, so tread lightly if you're the sensitive type.
