About the Author
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 style of writing is very personal and she is not afraid to handle subjects that are painful for her to write and painful for us to read!
I admire her for her strength to keep on laughing (mostly about herself) after the things that she has been through (done to herself, most of the time) - she is one of my heroes!
Please read this book!

I bought this book after seeing Carrie Fisher in a one woman show talking about her life. I found the show funny and sad and thought the book would be much the same. Read morePublished on 1 Feb. 2013 by Zas
