A thoroughly original and intimate memoir by the bestselling author of Postcards from the Edge and Wishful Drinking.

About the Author

Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, became an icon when she starred as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. Her eclectic Hollywood career includes roles in numerous films such as The Blues Brothers, When Harry Met Sally and the recent world-wide blockbuster, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She is the author of such international bestselling novels and non-fiction as Wishful Drinking, Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The Best Awful, and Postcards from the Edge, which was made into a hit film starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. Fisher's experience with addiction and mental illness--and her willingness to speak honestly about them-- made her a sought-after speaker and respected advocate before her death in 2016.

      Behind the scenes on the set of the first ever Star Wars movie in 1977. Carrie Fisher is brutally honest about her co-stars and her own self doubts in the role of Princess Leia.

        It was a bit average. I stopped reading when the Harrison Ford meeting starts to becomes drawn out.
        Yawn.

          "a readable and eye-opening account of a sad but strong princess who has always been her own woman" USA Today "Fisher offers a thoughtful, sardonic meditation on the price of fame, cost-of-living adjustments included." -- J.D. Biersdorfer The New York Times Book Review "[The Princess Diarist] is a radical truth bomb" -- Julia Felsenthal VOGUE.com
