From the Hollywood hot seat to her Hawaiian macadamia nut farm, bestselling author and television star Roseanne Barr isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty!
As controversial, original, and funny as ever, Roseanne Barr unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, class warfare, feminism, the cult of celebrity, Kabbalah, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value—as well as her musings on menopause, pharmaceuticals, her grandkids, and other humorous topics of everyday life. Bold and brash, witty and insightful, Roseannearchy shows why The New York Times describes her appeal as “the power of a whole planet, pulling everything around it inexorably into its orbit.”
Emmy Award-winning actress and New York Times bestselling author Roseanne Barr started her career in stand-up comedy before landing her own long-running hit TV series, Roseanne. She has returned to stand-up comedy over the last few years and blogs regularly at RoseanneWorld.com. She is a frequent guest on Real Time with Bill Maher and lives in Los Angeles and on her nut farm in Hawaii.
“Roseanne kills me—always has, and I think you will be as tickled as I was that she now has aimed her take-no-prisoners, ovaries-to-the-wall attitude to politics. Welcome back, Crazy.”
“Roseanne is funny, everybody knows that. But then there is everything else—the humanity, rabbinical wisdom, Mother Earth fearlessness, true beauty, and the ability to stay one step ahead of insanity at all times. She’s always had her finger on the pulse and can tell when the patient needs some emergency care. Nurse Barr has saved us once again.”
