Melissa Rivers has penned a book about her beloved late mother, comedian Joan Rivers.

According to People, the 47-year-old television personality is releasing “The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation,” which will “share funny, poignant, and irreverent observations, thoughts, and tales about the woman who raised her,” said her publisher Crown Archetype.

“In our family we always believed that laughter was the best medicine,” Melissa told the mag. “I wanted to write a book that would make my mother laugh. I hope it makes you laugh, too.”

Melissa shares tons of personal anecdotes in the book, which hits shelves on May 5.
