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. In THE BOOK OF JOAN, Melissa shares stories, bon mots and life lessons from growing up in the Rosenberg-Rivers household.
