Controversial performance artist brings her new book, ‘Reality Shows’
Comedian, actor, writer and 2012 presidential candidate Roseanne Barr held court at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse Wednesday night as she read from her newest book, “Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm,” and answered questions from some of her more passionate fans.
Sandwiched between other appearances and boarding a flight, Barr’s dramatic reading of “Roseannearchy” was punctuated with moments of ad-libbed commentary as she read from a section about her family’s weddings.
“Jenny, my big legged daughter,” Barr read before looking up from the pages and explaining, “She’s so pissed, she’s so pissed at this, I have to say I’m afraid she’s going to sue me on it,” before detailing how her efforts to make her daughter skinny may have had the opposite effect.
