review Wishful Drinking

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 inst. Turning to the first of her short memoirs I was faced with some of Carrie Fisher s most interesting sentiments and humorous anecdotes detailing a life about which I knew very little Fisher adds as an opening disclaimer that she underwent electro convulsive therapy ECT which erased some of her past memories so things within these pages might not be as clear or succinct as their actual occurrences Born in the worst possible situation the offspring of two Hollywood stars Carrie Fisher found herself in the middle of the most complex family tree imaginable With Eddie Fisher an apparently famous crooner of the 1950s and Debbie Reynolds famous Hollywood starlet at a young age as parents Fisher was forced to live in their blinding glory and make a name for herself However as with many star studded couples her parents moved on to bigger and better things leaving her as a child of divorce Does she use this excuse to explain away her decision to turn to drugs and alcohol Not at all or at least no than any other child Fisher tells of a life both in Los Angeles and New York following her mother along her successful but fading career before she ended up on the set of Star Wars at nineteen and carving out a name for herself This single character Princess Leia has permeated Fisher s very being and she was forever unable to shake its presence Pulling out some stories about her interactions with George Lucas to explain why wearing a bra on set would not make scientific sense her brief marriage to Paul Simon and eventually marrying a man who got her pregnant and eventually announced that he was gay Fisher takes the reader through a whirlwind tour of some of her most memorable moments all surrounding an ever increasing dependence on pills psychiatrists and flashes of fame An interesting smattering of thoughts and memories instilled with enough humour to leave the reader feeling this is an extended comedy dialogue Fisher presents something to tide the reader over between larger and substantial reading assignments Funny for what it is but not a stellar piece for those seeking an in depth exploration of Carrie Fisher s lifeSome might wonder why I am reading Carrie Fisher after I panned her two novels so recently I knew what I was getting into with this book and it delivered precisely what I expected While I might have preferred something linear I found myself interested in all the adventures follies and downright stupidity that crossed Fisher s path I knew her only as Princess Leia though I was not one to plaster posters upon my wall and so all of this proved both intriguing and even a little entertaining Fisher does not try to gussy up her writing or her stories They are precisely as she remembers them though she does remind the reader of her ECT throughout the piece which acts as a means to understand some of the random commentaries found herein Engaging and even a little provocative Fisher serves her purpose by presenting this piece the first in what became a series We shall see what else comes to pass as the Force flows through me for the other two memoir ish publicationsKudos Madam Fisher for entertaining and intriguing me A nice appetizer before I delve into a month of hard going biographiesLovehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at

    Carrie Fisher's ever present sarcasm rubbed me the wrong way It was entertaining in the beginning but does one need to be sarcastic 247 to be funny? NO I especially don't recommend the audiobook Also while this is shocking at times it is not very insightful or meaningful But well RIP Carrie Fisher

    Like most boys popping wood for the first time in the late '70s and early '80s I had a healthy interest in Princess Leia Carrie Fisher Later in life whenever I've seen one of her books on the shelves I'd think about possibly reading it out of interest for what she might have to say regarding those iconic Star Wars movies I even gave a littl

    The sad thing about this book is that my favorite part was the cover I mean that's a brilliant coverBut overall? Not the book I was hoping for Fisher seems to have mostly transcribed her one woman show and the problem is what works for a performance doesn't hold up very well as a book Everything's sort of glossed over with self deprecating j
