I emerge from my three-week-long ECT treatment to discover that I am not only this Princess Leia creature but also several-sized dolls, various T-shirts and posters, some cleansing items, and a bunch of other merchandise… How’s that for a newborn-how-do-you-do damsel in very little cinematic distress?

Carrie Fisher’s upbringing, the child of celebrity darlings at the heart of the Hollywood bubble was anything but ordinary. Then, at just 19, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars. A fairy tale come true, some might say,: “But it isn't all sweetness and light sabres."

Aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother (not to mention the hyperspace hairdo), Carrie spent her time away from the limelight 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, 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.

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with her own brand of inimitable wit and honesty.

‘She has a wonderful self-deprecating wit and total lack of self-pity – there is none of the I Will Survive grandiosity one expects from Hollywood memoirs… she is a one-off and a joy.’ – The Telegraph
