Official Book Club Selection

My last book of 2009 was really emotionally heavy and I needed the equivalent of literary tabloids to cleanse my mind. So, I was very excited when I came upon Kathy Griffin’s new book, “Official Book Club Selection” at the library. Exactly what I needed. I laughed out loud quite a few times, and was smiling through most of the rest of it. (I say “most of the rest of it” because she does cover some sadder stuff – the deaths of family members and friends, and her divorce, for example.)

Some of the highlights of the book include her childhood as an unpopular kid, her struggle to stardom, what some well-known celebrities really act like, and her own botched liposuction which almost killed her, (including photos). Which, now that I say all that out loud, it sounds like a real downer of a book, but Kathy Griffin can make anything funny.

If you like Kathy Griffin and/or celebrity gossip, you won’t be disappointed. (By the way, I love the title. She doesn’t beat around the bush. Hey, Oprah! Hurry up and get this girl on your show. What else does she have to do to get your attention?!)
