Los Angeles: Actress Melissa Rivers has paid a tribute to her mother through 'The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation'.
The book shares funny, poignant, and irreverent observations, thoughts, and tales about the woman who raised her, reported People magazine.
"In our family we always believed that laughter was the best medicine. I wanted to write a book that would make my mother laugh. I hope it makes you laugh, too," Melissa said.
In her book, she shares personal anecdotes from her childhood, like the time her parents delivered her as birthday gift to funnyman Johnny Carson when she was just nine-months-old or her mother's idea of a math lesson.
"I can do tips and discounts and figure out the number of gay men in an audience to make it a good show. That's all the math you'll ever need," she said. Joan, who died on September 4, 2014, was famous for her comedy and biting wit. 'The Book of Joan' comes out on May 5.
