This will surely be one helluva book.

Joan Rivers' death garnered a lot of attention because of her legendary status as one of Hollywood's funniest and most daring comediennes.

So it should really come as no surprise to hear that a Joan Rivers biography is already in the works.

Joan Rivers: A Life has been acquired by Little, Brown and Company and will be written by New York Times journalist Leslie Bennetts.

The book is being described as "the definitive book about Rivers's tumultuous, victorious, tragic, glamorous, and fascinating life" and will be slated for a 2016 release date.

It will also be released as an audio book by Hachette Audio and as an eBook.

Little, Brown editor-in-chief Judy Clain commented:

"Joan Rivers was more than a comedian — she was an icon and a role model to millions. I'm thrilled that journalist Leslie Bennetts is now on board with Little, Brown to bring the full depth and drama of Rivers's career and personality to life."

Leslie also commented on the opportunity to write the book:

"Joan Rivers' life story was, in every way, a remarkably dramatic roller-coaster ride characterized by triumphant highs and devastating lows, one that is both wildly entertaining and deeply moving."

Considering Joan's humor and outrageous personality, this book certainly has a lot to live up to.

We hope it does her justice!

    Gosh, they do not even let her rest in peace..besides..Joan has already written her own biography, "Enter Talking" and "Still Talking". So why bother reading a book by someone who doesn't even know Joan? Pass!
