After four hit novels, one of which became a feature film, and after an iconic time as Princess Leia of Star Wars, Carrie Fisher comes "clean" with a memoir about what it's like to be a product of "Hollywood in-breeding". A term she has coined to describe the Hollywood royalty, Fisher reveals her life from the inside - the scandals, the marriages and remarriages of each of her parents, and her own marriage to Paul Simon.
With a disarming wit and self-deprecatory tone, Fisher shares about her addictions, her bipolar disorder, and her wonderful daughter, who, at fifteen, is amazingly "together", despite the drama of Fisher's own life.
Some of her experiences were described in her novels - "Postcards from the Edge" became a movie with Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine - but her psychiatric diagnoses came later.Wishful Drinking
is a book for anyone who felt less than perfect, but survived anyway.
