Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm | Roseanne Barr
2 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND TELEVISION STAR ROSEANNE BARR IS BACKWITH A VENGEANCEAND THE RESULT IS ROSEANNEARCHY. 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 return to the printed page, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable valueas well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And shes 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 shes looking to refinance the loan of her soulthis 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.

One of the many things I loved about Roseanne back in the day is that the main character was a writer. In fact, the series finale explained how much of the series was Roseanne Conner‘s book.

The show is back tonight! I‘m excited, even if I find it difficult to accept that Roseanne (Barr AND Conner) voted for Supreme Cheeto.

Still, it should be another interesting chapter in a story that many of us related to.

JoScho I am excited for this and trying not to let her politics change the way I view her as well. 5y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Looking forward to your reviews! 5y
Sweettartlaura I‘m actually hopeful that watching Roseanne & Jackie work out their political differences can pave the way for me to build some bridges to my own politically estranged relatives. 5y
