Publisher's Summary

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 audibook, 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, feminism, 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.

Pearls of wisdom from a modern day philospher

When Roseanne is letting all the people who've walked through her life have it with both barrels: parents, husbands, kids, network executives, she does it with equal measures of raw honesty and hilarious philosphy. For those of us who were brought up on Roseanne, and the Connor family, this book is a reminder of the comic and caustic genius that is Roseanne Barr. To have the story read to you by the author herself just adds to an unforgetable journey!
