Wishful Drinking
176 pages; Simon & Schuster
Don't cry for her. Carrie Fisher is too sassy to put up with sympathy—even if she did have a hellish Hollywood childhood, electroshock treatments for depression, bipolar episodes, and enough drugs and drink to explode a galaxy. "If my life wasn't funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable," writes the iconic, ironic Star Wars heroine in Wishful Drinking, a memoir adapted from her one-woman show—and a star turn all its own.
