From the Publisher:

Can we really talk? Internationally known comic and bestselling author of The Life and Times of Heidi Abramowitz, Enter Talking, and Still Talking , Joan Rivers uses her characteristic verve and wit to candidly reveal how she hit rock bottom and made it back on top.

In one of the most original books of the year, the inimitable Joan Rivers couples a hefty dose of her inspirational ideas on overcoming anything in life with her trademark humor, to produce a book that everyone will want to read to learn how Joan Rivers overcame personal setbacks and tragedies.

As Joan says, the most obvious difference between her worst year and Queen Elizabeth's "annus horribilis" was that , unlike Liz, she managed to stay away from pastel-colored double knits. But, in reality, it was nothing compared to what happened to Rivers: in one year, she endured her husband's suicide, her estrangement from her daughter, the cancellation of her talk show, and near financial ruin. With unbridled humor, compassion, and relentless honesty, Rivers now sheds a sharp light on how she overcame these devestating setbacks to land on her feet and take the public by storm.

Bouncing Back is a very human, no-holds barred approach to overcoming life's setbacks. Anecdotal, funny, yet inspirational, it is sure to be another Rivers' bestseller.
