‘I don’t think you can even call this a drug. This is just a response to the conditions we live in.’

Suzanne Vale, formerly acclaimed actress, is in rehab, feeling like ‘something on the bottom of someone’s shoe, and not even someone interesting’. Immersed in the sometimes harrowing, often hilarious goings-on of the drug hospital and wondering how she’ll cope – and find work – back on the outside, she meets new patient Alex. Ambitious, good-looking in a Heathcliffish way and in the grip of a monumental addiction, he makes Suzanne realize that, however eccentric her life might seem, there’s always someone who’s even closer to the edge of reason.

Carrie Fisher’s bestselling debut novel is an uproarious commentary on Hollywood – the home of success, sex and insecurity – and has become a beloved cult classic.

`Carrie Fisher's 1987 roman a clef bristles with a bravery and candor that still feels groundbreaking' * New York Times * `Savagely funny and savagely revealing. It makes Moby-Dick seem like a big, fat, dumb book' -- Steve Martin `A sharply irreverent, deliciously witty trip through Hollywood-land' -- Jackie Collins `I'd forgotten how good it is. Carrie Fisher's narrator Suzanne Vale tells this story, of a privileged woman gone awry, with sharpness and wit' * Evening Standard *

Carrie Fisher

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 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. 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.
