Publisher Comments:

BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND TELEVISION STAR ROSEANNE BARR IS BACKand#8212;WITH A VENGEANCEand#8212;AND THE RESULT IS ROSEANNEARCHY. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this return to the printed page, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable valueand#8212;as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And sheand#8217;s as controversial, original, and funny as ever. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Raised half-Jewish, half-Mormon, and 100 percent misfit, Roseanne made a deal with Satan early on as the price she paid for stardom. But now sheand#8217;s looking to refinance the loan of her souland#8212;this book represents her final exorcism of fame. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Displaying her brilliance and sharp wit, Roseanne discusses the humor of everyday life with musings on more serious topics, such as class warfare, feminism, the cult of celebrity, and Kabbalah. Bold, brash, and insightful, andlt;Iandgt;Roseannearchyandlt;/Iandgt; shows that she can still skewer any subject under the sun and why The New York Times describes her appeal as and#8220;the power of a whole planet, pulling everything around it inexorably into its orbit.and#8221;
