`Carrie Fisher's 1987 roman a clef bristles with a bravery and candor that still feels groundbreaking' * New York Times * `Savagely funny and savagely revealing. It makes Moby-Dick seem like a big, fat, dumb book' -- Steve Martin `A sharply irreverent, deliciously witty trip through Hollywood-land' -- Jackie Collins `I'd forgotten how good it is. Carrie Fisher's narrator Suzanne Vale tells this story, of a privileged woman gone awry, with sharpness and wit' * Evening Standard *
