Bestselling author and TV star Roseanne Barr is back in the headlines with the book Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm.
She will sign copies of her new book at Sam Weller's Bookstore in Salt Lake City on Jan. 13 at 6 p.m.
From the press release:
In this return to the printed page, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable values—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 perfect 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."
