Rivers' new tomes are titled "Men Are Stupid . . . And They Like Big Boobs . . . A Woman's Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery" and "Murder at the Academy Awards: A Red Carpet Murder Mystery." Book signings are currently scheduled for Jan. 24 at the Bank Street Book Nook in New Milford, CT, 4-6 PM; Jan. 29 at the Barnes & Noble, Lincoln Square in New York, NY, 7:30-9:30 PM; Jan. 31 at Book Ends in Ridgewood, NJ, 11 AM-1 PM; Feb. 12 at Book Soup in Los Angeles, CA, 7-9 PM; and Feb. 13 at Barnes & Noble, University Village in Seattle, WA, 12 noon-2 PM.

"Men Are Stupid," according to press notes is "an informational social commentary, comedy, memoir, and practical, info-packed journey into beauty treatments including plastic surgery. . . [The book was] written for every woman who wants to improve herself, giving the average woman a step-by-step guide on how to look and feel gorgeous – delivered with Joan's quintessential sense of humor."

In the novel "Murder on the Red Carpet," it's "Oscar night in Hollywood and the famous mother-daughter interview team is on the red carpet, mikes in hand. Everything is glitz and glitter as the stars arrive, but things turn quickly from fabulous to scandalous as a just-back-from-rehab starlet drops dead."

Joan Rivers made her Broadway stage debut in Fun City and later was a replacement player in Neil Simon's Broadway Bound. A stand-up comic making guest-host appearances on "The Tonight Show," Rivers eventually hosted her own talk show, "The Joan Rivers Show." She received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress for her work in Sally Marr...and Her Escorts — which she also co-wrote. Her most recent theatrical outing was in her autobiographical A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress.
