Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, became an icon when she starred as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. Her star-studded career includes roles in numerous films such as The Blues Brothers and When Harry Met Sally. She is the author of five bestselling novels, Wishful Drinking, Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The Best Awful, and Postcards from the Edge, which was made into a hit film starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. Fisher's experience with addiction and mental illness -- and her willingness to speak honestly about them -- have made her a sought-after speaker and respected advocate.
`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 *
