It's been almost eight months since Joan Rivers passed away at age 81 following complications from an endoscopic procedure, but her daughter Melissa says she's finally not counting the hours or days since.

"I never let myself imagine life without her," Melissa exclusively tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "Why would I want to?"

In a new memoir, The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief and Manipulation, Melissa pays tribute to her mom, recalling an upbringing that was filled with love and laughter.

"It was very, very cathartic to write."
