A Q&A with Joan Rivers

Q: What kinds of books do you enjoy?

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.

From Publishers Weekly

The Rivers brand of comedy, celebrity gossip, fashion commentary and motivational chutzpa so beloved by her fans is on full display in this guide to elective plastic surgery. As a reader, Rivers embodies the Can we talk? accessibility of her standup persona, never missing an opportunity for a colorful pun or punch line. Still, she projects authority when imparting medical advice about cosmetic procedures, particularly the importance of selecting a reputable physician and following protocols for after-care and recovery. Her guide spans wrinkle removals to various aesthetic enhancements to female genitalia. Rivers's candor offends and endears with equal measure, and her irreverent treatment deserves credit for offering guidance from health professionals. A Simon & Schuster hardcover. (Jan.)

I bought this book on Saturday at Joan's signing at the Bank Street Book Nook in New Milford, CT. If she can fill a bookstore to bursting in the middle of CT, you KNOW she has a great book!

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.

This Rivers is once again overflowing with wit, wisdom and wisecracks. "Men are Stupid . . ." is a fun (and fact-filled) excursion into the semi-conscious world of nips and tucks by a woman who's been so surgically streamlined that her belly-button . . . ok, we'll leave the jokes to her. She'll hold your hand when it comes to physician picking, lip plumping, mole removal, wrinkle filling . . . as self-effacing as it is ego-centric, Men are Stupid won't leave you in stitches, but it will bring a pre (and post) operative smile to your (new) face

I picked up this book out of mere curiosity and have been happy with it. Joan Rivers covers a wide range of topics: botox, plumping, fillers, skin, hair removal, face lifts, boob jobs, noses, lipo, tucks, eyes, & body. She starts each chapter with a cheesy story where she tries to accomplish the procedure herself, then eventually defers to a doctor. I've found her descriptions to be an accurate summary and easy read; she also presents the pros and cons of each procedure. In addition she gives price ranges for each procedure and estimates on how long the procedure takes and how much time you need for recovery. I've recommended this to friends & have just ordered a second book for my mom.

I'm not too far into the book, but it's typical joan rivers. She openly discusses her plastic surgery and the reasons behind it, with no reservations. It's very much like her monologues, and easy to read.

This is a great book that discusses all the plastic surgery procedures you could dream of and some that will really surprise you. I'm interested in how Joan keeps looking great at age 75. She tells you what she did, when and names some plastic surgeons. She covers the face and the body and tells what to look out for and what can go wrong. The big thing is choose your doctor very carefully.

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

Joan does a great job in explaining the various plastic surgical procedures in layman's terms. After reading her book I'm much more likely to have a procedure done. She also adds great touches of comedy throughout the book! If you're a woman considering surgical enhancement, you've got to read this book!

Confession: I have very little interest in plastic surgery. I bought this audiobook by accident...at the Borders going out of business sale. I was in a hurry, grabbing things quickly, and since it was by Joan Rivers, I assumed it was a comedy CD. Boy, was I wrong! Although she has some funny lines, this is not primarily comedy.

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."
