Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The collection of hilarious and provocative essays by New York Times bestselling author and television pioneer Roseanne Barr as she takes on world leaders, militant feminists, and even Satan.

Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether 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 value — as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she’s as controversial, original, and funny as ever.

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 she’s looking to refinance the loan of her soul — this book represents her final exorcism of fame.

Displaying her brilliance and sharp wit, Roseanne discusses the humor of everyday life with musings on more serious topics, such as class warfare, the cult of celebrity, and Kabbalah. Bold, brash, and insightful, Roseannearchy shows that she can still skewer any subject under the sun and why the New York Times describes her appeal as “the power of a whole planet, pulling everything around it inexorably into its orbit.”

Review:

"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." Sandra Bernhard

Review:

"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." Bill Maher

Synopsis:

Can't wait to meet Ms. Barr at her book signing. I am a huge fan of her work and life, she is a truth teller that uses humor to enlighten those with ears to hear to wake up to our reality. Thank you Rosanne!
