    Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she’s formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only 19 years old.

    JanBreesmom says: "Carrie Fisher Grows up, Learns About Real Life"
    "Funny, sad, and very satisfying."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Shockaholic to be better than the print version?

    Carrie Fisher is one of the great American humorists and her timing and inflections are infinitely better than anything my mind could come up with. Her story is deeply personal and it is somewhere between a treat and an honor to hear her narrate her story.


    What other book might you compare Shockaholic to and why?

    Wishful Drinking


    Have you listened to any of Carrie Fisher’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not but I want to hear everything she's done now.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Carrie Fisher's depiction of her father and their relationship was deeply moving. Eddie Fisher didn't deserve her love or forgiveness but she deserved to give it. The same with her building a relationship with Elizabeth Taylor, no one would fault Carrie Fisher for resenting Liz, but the scene where she let's Liz push her into a pool was cathartic and healing for both of the--only in Carrie Fisher's world does this happen!


    Any additional comments?

    This is great to listen to in your car or home, but be careful in public because you might alarm strangers by snorting with laughter.
