Joan Rivers biography slated for 2016, says publisher

Veteran journalist Leslie Bennetts will pen a biography of Joan Rivers for release in 2016, publisher Little, Brown announced. Bennetts, who interviewed a wide range of celebrities during her 24 years as a Vanity Fair contributing editor, said in a statement that Rivers' career was "enormously significant in American cultural history, breaking down barriers for women in television and comedy and continually redefining the acceptable boundaries of truth-telling for women in public life." Bennetts is the author of 2007's "The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much?"
