Overview

Although it seems impossible that Joan Rivers could have recovered from the series of false moves and personal tragedies that caused her life and career to fall apart in public, she's done just that. River's fortunes took a downward spiral after she quit The Tonight Show to host her own late-night show on Fox. Despite solid ratings, Fox unceremoniously gave her the ax just eight months after the show premiered. Soon after, her husband of twenty-two years took his own life. Now, three years later, Joan Rivers has picked up the pieces and launched a new syndicated talk show - which recently won her an Emmy for best host. Now, for the first time, Rivers speaks frankly on her husband's suicide, her daughter's grief, the real story behind her firing from Fox and much more. With her trademark combination of biting humor and fragility, tough-minded ambition and traditional values, Rivers tells a blockbuster story of tragedy and triumph.
