--Joan Rivers, 2012
Joan Rivers is a groundbreaking, award-winning, internationally renowned entertainment goddess. She's also opinionated--especially when it comes to people she hates. Like people who think giving birth is a unique achievement. Or well-adjusted, a.k.a. boring, ex-child stars who don't even have a decent addiction.
With all of her diverse experiences, it stands to reason that Joan has seen, done, said, and heard a lot of hateful things. Thank god, she took notes.
Here--uncensored and totally uninhibited--she gives the best of her worst to First Ladies, closet cases, hypocrites, Hollywood, feminists, and overrated historical figures. And even when letting herself have it, Joan doesn't hold back in this honest, unabashedly hilarious love letter to the hater in all of us.
Comedian Joan Rivers hates a lot of things. Her new book, I Hate Everyone, Starting With Me, details the things Rivers can't stand, from her appearance to obituaries to younger comedians who steal her gigs. More at NPR.org
