A Q&A with Joan Rivers
A: At my age, anything in large print.
Q: Who inspired you to become a writer?
A: An agent who told me I was too ugly to be in front of the camera.
Q: Is it true when they say that you should “write what you know”?
A: Absolutely, which is why my next book is about having thighs that are visible from outer space.
Q: Writing is a tough profession. Do you remember the first time you were rejected?
A: My wedding night.
Q: What is it like having a novel? published at the age of 75?
A: I am so old, even the spine of my book has osteoporosis.
Q: Computer, typewriter or pen and paper. What tools did you use to write your first book?
A: Chisel and stone.
Q: Are you one of those writers who work at home in a dirty old bathrobe without showering for days?
A: Yes, except for the part about working at home.
Q: What’s the first step in getting a publisher interested in your book?
A: A check for fifty grand made out to “cash”.
Q: Is it true that the murder mystery was heavily influenced by fashions seen on the red carpet?
A: Absolutely. Even the dust jacket was made by Chanel.
Q: What was the most important thing that you learned while writing a book about plastic surgery?
A: Always use the spell-check when you’re still under anesthesia.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm not a fan of cosmetic surgery (today...) But I have to say - I can NOT discern Joan Rivers' age from standing 2 feet away from her. She looks wonderful. And she is gracious and cordial (I had my autistic daughter with me and we were having a moment....)
I mean, who the heck is the average woman going to ask about these procedures? The book lays out everything a woman of a "Certain Age" needs and wants to know and adds Joan's trademark humor. What more could you ask for (except a pocket full of cash to afford the work!)
Now I'm off to read Murder at The Academy Awards.
I'm glad that Joan's talking because too many stars keep their procedures hidden. I've had an upper & lower eyelift, chin implant, mini facelift, liposuction, botox, restaylane, and cheek implants. My nephew said last week that he couldn't believe I'm 2 years older than his father when I look so much younger. LOL
If you are contemplating plastic surgery, I'd heartily recommend this. Otherwise don't buy it!
Joan is very open and honest about the pros and cons of plastic surgery. She can be harsh when discussing other celebrities (which some people may find offensive) but she is just as hard on herself. She is also lavish with praise when her opinion of others' surgery is positive. She is equally honest about what you can expect, what can go wrong, whether a procedure is painful and how painful, how long it takes to recover, how long it lasts.
This book is like getting the scoop from your best friend on what it's REALLY like.
I have to say that before listening to this CD, I was fairly indifferent to Joan Rivers as a comedian or as a person. After listening to it, I have a lot of respect for her candor. Also, I find it hard to believe that no man has ever told her she was pretty. I think she looks great. Not just "great for her age."
