Joan Rivers' daughter has written a memoir about her late mother.

Melissa Rivers' book about her mum and close friend is called The Book Of Joan: Tales Of Mirth, Mischief, And Manipulation, and it is due to be released on May 5.

Crown Archetype, an imprint of Penguin Random House, said it will feature jokes, stories and advice.

Melissa said in a statement that laughter had "less side effects than Prozac" and was "a lot cheaper than therapy".

She also said that she had written a book she hoped would make her mother laugh.

Comedienne Joan Rivers died last September after she went into cardiac and respiratory arrest during a throat procedure.
