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 and weathering the wild ride of manic depression. It's an incredible tale - from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother, to marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, and 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.

      Comments about Wishful Drinking:

      This is an easy read book, laughed so hard had tears streaming down my face. Only wish it had have been thicker with more content, I hated when it ended. What a great author she was, funny, witty and intelligent. I have since bought two of her other books and can't wait to get into them. What a sad loss to the world now she has gone.

          Carrie Fisher

Her eclectic Hollywood career includes roles in numerous films such as The Blues BrothersWhen 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 DrinkingSurrender the PinkDelusions of GrandmaThe Best Awful, and Postcards from the Edge, which was made into a hit film starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep.
