WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher recounts a true and intoxicating story with the same strong, wry wit that she poured into bestsellers like Postcards from the Edge. Born to celebrity parents, she lands among the stars when picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars. But it isn't all sweetness and lightsabers. Aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mom, our heroine spends her free time battling addiction, weathering the wild ride of manic depression, and lounging around mental institutions. It's an incredible tale -- from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother to wedding (and shedding) Paul Simon, from having the father of her baby leave for a man to waking up one morning and finding a friend dead in her bed.
