What do you get when you combine one of the most talented TV stars of the early '90s (not to mention, one of the most controversial and attention-hungry), a heroic and underestimated and unappreciated sister and an otherwise true story that has never been told until now? A fascinating book that like its authoress (Geraldine Barr) and subject (sister, Roseanne) is both fascinating and eye-opening.

I have always been enamored with Roseanne because her TV show was one of the only true depictions of a realistic American family. Like many of her fans, I followed her through all of her countless "revelations" and hairball claims during the '90s when she made up story after story for more fame, attention and money.

It wasn't until I read "My Sister Roseanne" that I really learned about this complex and sad woman, Roseanne Barr. But this book is so much more than a typical celebrity biography. It's just as much Geraldine's story as it is Roseanne's. And like her big sister, Geraldine is an intriguing and complex woman and talented in her own right.

Even if this book wasn't about one of my favorite TV stars I still would have enjoyed it though. That's because Geraldine rips the veil of secrecy off of all of Hollywood while she discusses things that have rarely made it into mainstream popular books up until now. She talks about money, contracts, the love of attention and the proverbial fame game years before any other top star had the courage or the will to talk about these things. Her writing is not only factual, but also inspiring and revealing.

"My Sister Roseanne" was published 15 years ago, in 1994 when Roseanne was at her most powerful and most successful (at the time this book came out her show was number-1) and perhaps with all the clout that fame brings a woman who achieves a hit sitcom, Roseanne was able to collectively get this book blackballed. The same critics that panned this book as poultry and subversive were the same ones that praised Roseanne's book that came out 6 months prior to this; yet no one called Roseanne money-motivated or greedy, even though her second autobiography was published less than 5 years after her first.

My main reason for reading this book is because I always like to hear the "back story" or "inside story" or the story that the media doesn't pick up because it's not shocking or scandalous. Instead, this book is a truthful depiction of Geraldine's life and association with her sister, Roseanne.

Geraldine discusses in intimate detail how she was Roseanne's chief writer and business manager for over a decade only to be callously fired in a matter of seconds because Roseanne simply didn't want her in her life anymore. Geraldine also writes about how Roseanne became drunk and inebriated on her own fame and would say and do things for no other reason than to get attention and to stay in the spotlight.

My second reason for reading this book is because I strongly believe that Mr. and Mrs. Barr (Geraldine's parents) got a really bad rap by their ungrateful and dishonest daughter, Roseanne. Geraldine writes about how Roseanne's false claims of incest nearly killed her parents (I honestly cannot imagine anything worse for a parent to go through). In detail she even takes the time to describe how her entire family was affected and afflicted by Roseanne's malicious and deceitful claims.

Perhaps what was least surprising was how Geraldine took the time to even go into specifics concerning her parents' innocence regarding these hateful claims. Yet, this is just one more thing that the media never talks about. It is sad that when someone gets famous their words are held up like concrete that causes the masses to believe anything that is said.

The book also includes several pictures (however none of them are new or unpublished). Although the picture on the cover was a cute picture of Geraldine and Roseanne (I included a scan of it because the 18 people selling it on Amazon didn't bother to put up a picture).

Since the book has been published Geraldine has been vindicated. Roseanne reconciled with her estranged family about 10 years ago and has since recanted all of the hateful and notorious statements that were made, such as being an incest survivor at the hands of her innocent parents. Yet there wasn't a big press conference to state this.

I have a lot of respect and admiration for Geraldine because she told the story that no one really wanted to hear. It's ironic in a way, isn't it? I mean she was really ahead of her time with this book. For its time period it was rather groundbreaking because it came out during a time period when many celebrities (everyone from La Toya Jackson to Patty Duke) were (falsely?) claiming to be victims of abuse. Yet if Geraldine had written the book now it likely would never have been published or seen the light of day. The story is very dated and only people who really want to search out the truth would probably pick it up. Nevertheless it's a fantastic book.

This book is an invaluable portrait of Roseanne and her family, and how her family coped with Roseanne's sexual abuse allegations against her father in the early 1990s. It is also, primarily, the story of sisters, who worked together to create a successful business (Roseanne's career) and how the relationship came apart when Roseanne became a household name. On one level the book is not without its flaws: it is overwritten and at times repetitive. However, these flaws are balanced by the author's mostly successful attempts to present all sides of the story in straight-forward prose. Geraldine Barr is as candid discussing her own shortcomings -- and those of her family -- as she is in discussing Roseanne's and, as a result, the book emerges as a cut above the average tell-all memoir. That the Barr family seemed to become a closer unit in the wake of Roseanne's abuse allegations is the real story here.

I have read a lot of books trying to figure out the comedic genius of Roseanne Barr and this one did not assist me in my goal. It was well-written but lacked that certain something that you feel when you are being told the truth. I also read Roseanne Barr's book and felt the same way. My suspicion is that the two of them wrote Roseanne's act together UNLIKE each of them taking full credit in their books.

If you were to total all the interesting parts of this book, you'd come up with about thirty pages. Mostly, it chronicles how Roseanne Barr went off her rocker when she got involved with Tom Arnold and then, with the aid of false memory syndrome, betrayed her family. If you have a lot of patience and don't mind reading the same thing over and over couched in different (yet still unlyrical) language, then it might entertain you just for the dirt it gives on a major celebrity.

This book preports to give the "real" biography of Roseanne Barr, and it is colorful indeed. Still, one wonders about the author's (her sister, Geraldine's) credibility since much of the text is presented in a negative light that highlights Barr's faults. The passages on Barr's accusations of childhood sexual abuse are intriguing and raise skepticism; but overall, the book has a whiney, defensive tone coming from a sister who was suprisingly and, in her view, unjustly fired as Barr's agent/promoter. More info about the development and execution of the popular "Roseanne" television show would have been interesting. In my opinion, the writing in this book is much too padded and reads a bit like a gossip tabloid.
