From the Publisher
Editors Note A provocative, uproarious memoir based on the author's one-woman show describes growing up with celebrity parents, her early success in Star Wars, demanding professional life, battle with addiction and mental illness, turbulent romances, role as a single mother, and struggle for recovery and healing. 150,000 first printing.
Annotation Carrie Fisher, the razor-tongued author and actress, pens a much anticipated memoir based on her one woman show, WISHFUL DRINKING. The book details Fisher's life growing up in the limelight as the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. Perhaps best known for her role as Princess Leia, Fisher hilariously describes what it was like to be 19 and have an action figure in your likeness. She boldly leaves no stone unturned, openly discussing her alcoholism and addiction issues, her marriage and divorce from singer Paul Simon, her electroshock therapy, and the bizarre, over-the-top antics of her mother. A deeply personal and incredibly brave tell-all, Fisher examines her life through her own acerbic lens, with some pretty hilarious, and often moving results.
