SYNOPSIS: She's the creator and star of America's #1 TV show - 55 million Americans watch her every week. But none of you know the real Roseanne Barr - none of you know, unless you've read Roseanne: My Life as a Woman. From her childhood as a Jewish outcast in the strict Mormon society of Salt Lake City, Utah, to the pinnacle of success as television's newest and funniest star, Roseanne Barr's life story has been one of tremendous drama. Yet, through it all, her indomitable spirit and sharp wit have shone through. With this, her autobiography, she proves herself to be not only a terrific comedian but a wonderful writer and storyteller as well. Vogue said "she flings truth on the table like a TV dinner," and, after reading a few pages of Roseanne, you'll know: The truth will be flung tonight. Here you'll learn the truth about her horrifying, near-death experience as a teenager; her stay in a mental institution; and her escape from Utah. Here's the truth about her early years as a mother, a member of the working poor, struggling to raise a family in a trailer park. You'll read of the great people in her life who gave her the courage to follow her feelings and be true to herself; you'll learn what a beginner in show business has to do to get ahead; you'll read about her Woody Allen and Mel Gibson fantasies, and the drive it takes to keep going in the hard and tough world of Hollywood. Roseanne's life is the story of a woman who started with nothing, overcame great adversity, and with the strength of her convictions - and a brilliant wit - triumphs. But most important, here, for the first time, is the real Roseanne; the woman whose spirit and love for life, whose honesty and passion are on every page of this startling, funny, and remarkable autobiography.. First Edition 1st Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
