Tweet Length #SnaggedattheLibrary Review: Wishful Drinking by Carrie FisherWishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

Date Read: February 2016


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 sabres." 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.

  1. I don’t know much about Carrie Fisher but I sure admired her stand when people were criticizing her for not being the hot Princess everyone remembers from twenty some years ago.
