Joan Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, will publish The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation to honor her late mother.
In the book, Melissa Rivers “relates funny, poignant and irreverent observations, thoughts, and tales about the woman who raised her”.
Melissa Rivers’ publisher, Crown Archetype, made the announcement February 11, People magazine reported.
It will include anecdotes like when Melissa Rivers was nine months old and her parents delivered her to Johnny Carson as a birthday gift, and lessons from her childhood.
The book will also be filled with memorable lines from her mother.
“In our family, we always believed that laughter was the best medicine,” Melissa Rivers says of the upcoming release.
“I wanted to write a book that would make my mother laugh. I hope it makes you laugh, too.”
The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation hits shelves in May 2015.
