I Hate Everyone... Starting with Me

Joan Rivers, read by the author. Penguin Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 5 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-61176-065-1

"I hate the slogans in cheaper restaurants, like %E2%80%98have it your way.' My way would be in a better restaurant where the tables and chairs aren't chained to the floor." The ineffable Joan Rivers does, indeed, hate everything, and this hilarious account details all the reasons why. In this audio edition, Rivers proves very quickly that age has nothing on her and that she hasn't lost even a half step as a performer. Her delivery is perfect, her comedic timing as strong as it's ever been, and she reads with all the passion and inspired vision of her live performances. It's easy to listen to Rivers ramble on about everything that pisses her off, because more often than not%E2%80%94despite her star status%E2%80%94most people will likely agree with everything she says. Be it her hatred of cities where people are nice or her loathing of the Happy Meal, Rivers is equally passionate and opinionated on every subject she discusses. Hilarious and undeniably original. A Berkley hardcover. (June)
