Publisher's Summary

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers."

Alas, aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother (not to mention the hyperspace hairdo), Carrie also spends her free time battling addiction, weathering the wild ride of manic depression and lounging around various mental institutions. It's an incredible tale - from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother, to marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, from having the father of her daughter leave her for a man, to ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed.

    "Unfunny"

    The humour was lost on me. Maybe it's American humour. I found it distasteful mostly. I admit I did smile at some similes but that's about it. I would not recommend it.

    "Talk Therapy"

    Carrie Fisher doesn't read the book, she screams it. Then same old story about substance abuse and mental illness from a Hollywood celebrity.
