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.

who doesn't love Carrie Fisher?

I'm a huge fan of Carrie Fisher so I'd recommend the audio book to hear her tell her story. I'd also recommend the actual book or dvd version for more of the same

Carrie Fisher's self-narration is beautiful and perfect. Her words screams of brilliant wit and humor, a bittersweet experience.

Don't waste your time or money <br />

I finished it just to see if it would get interesting. Not a bit. The author obviously thought this was funny but I didnt. Terrible

She's a wild ride

I had no idea Carrie Fisher was so funny and had such an interesting life! It's an easy and enjoyable listen.

Hilarious!

Tragic comedy at its best. I loved it and would recommend this book to anyone but especially those over 60, who knew and loved Debbie Reynolds and Star Wars, too.

Entertaining and enlightening

This book was hilarious, with interesting insight into Bipolar Disorder and addiction. Rest in peace, Carrie Fisher.
