Official Book Club Selection is Kathy Griffin unplugged, uncensored, and unafraid to dish about what really happens on the road, away from the cameras, and at the star party after the show. (It’s also her big chance to score that coveted book club endorsement she’s always wanted. Are you there, Oprah? It’s me, Kathy.)

Kathy Griffin has won Emmys for her reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, been nominated for a Grammy, worked and walked every red carpet known to man, and rung in the New Year with Anderson Cooper. But the legions of fans who pack Kathy’s sold-out comedy shows have heard only part of her remarkable story. Writing with her trademark wit, the feisty comic settles a few old scores, celebrates the friends and mentors who helped her claw her way to the top, and shares insider gossip about celebrity behavior—the good, the bad, and the very ugly. She recounts the crazy ups and downs of her own career and introduces us to some of the super-talented people she encountered before they got famous (or, in some cases, after fame went to their heads). Word to the wise: if you’ve ever crossed Kathy Griffin, check the index for your name.

Along the way, Kathy reveals intimate details about her life before and after she made the big time. She opens up about everything from growing up with a dysfunctional family in suburban Illinois to bombing as a young comedian in Los Angeles, from her well-publicized plastic surgery disasters to her highly publicized divorce, and more. Only in this book will you learn how the dinner table is the best training ground for a career in stand-up, how speaking your mind can bite you on the ass and buy you a house, and which people in Kathy’s life have taught her the most valuable lessons—both inside and outside the entertainment industry.

Refreshingly candid and full of hilarious “Did she really say that?” moments, Official Book Club Selection will make you laugh until you cry, or just puke up a little bit.

    " kind of a long read. but when she is on she is on. i found myself laughing out loud in some chapters and rushing through others. but you can feel her honesty throughout the whole book... don't read if you have an issue with language. she has no filter in life or in her writings. "

    " Not what I was expecting...in a good way. While Kathy is still snarky and bitchy as ever, this is an actual memoir. She talks about her career, her childhood, her brother the pedophile, her plastic surgery, her divorce...real-life shit sprinkled with profanity in the way that only Kathy knows how. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves some good dick jokes. "

    " I think she is funny as hell but her book was a disappointment "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Wils Cain | 1/16/2014

    " Boy was this a guilty pleasure! I love Kathy Griffin and reading her book I could almost hear her reading it to me. Many laugh out loud moments which always make me very popular on public transportation, but hands down the funniest chapter is about a show she did at a college with Andy Dick. The chapter is about the hot mess named Andy Dick. I laughed, cried and snorted and generally alarmed people around me. "
