Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm | [Roseanne Barr]

Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm

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 audiobook, 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.

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.

    "I Didn't Want It To End!"

    Fantastic book. Especially since Roseanne herself read it. There were so many things I did not know about Roseanne Barr, and now I have a much better understanding of who she is as a person. Family, Religion, Politics, Sex are all there. I am looking forward to her next book.

    "OMG, I so LOVE Roseanne"

    Roseanne, you rock!! While sometimes the dialogue appears to be THC induced, I totally LOVE it. I admit I'm a fan from way back and Roseanne continues to do what she does best. She say what's on her mind, in black and white, with good humour, and a taste of ethics. I gulped down the audiobook and my hubby is intrigued too even though he didn't watch the TV series. I hope you do live to a ripe old age Roseanne to keep the world honest. Thanks for sharing your history with us and letting us to get to know you a little more. I admire you speaking openly about your mental health too. Thank you.

    "tough listen"

    I enjoy her humor but listening to her voice drone on and on was difficult. I tried hard but finally had to bail after 20 minutes.
