Wishfull Drinking, Carrie Fisher

Princess Leia sure knows how to put away the booze, pills and boyfriends in Wishful Drinking. Carrie Fisher is absolutely heartwarming, in this self loving and generously short book. She can write! Taking her manic depression with a grain of salt (Xanax). She admits to being the best bipolar actress she can possibly be, giving teenage boys wet dreams and finding a gay man dead in her bed.

Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

She talks about her love affairs and the daughter she loves, but is constantly afraid of disappointing, since she can’t always manage her depression. Anyone that’s traveled on the bumpy road of life will relate and should read this book. Fisher makes you laugh and cry. The dark moments she shares with her all to receptive audience turn endearing.

Wishful Drinking is fresh and vibrant. I’ll never look at the Star Wars in quite the same way. Did you know that Lucas envisioned that space had no underwear? He did. Fisher makes us understand that her mood swings, family life and being the offspring of famous parents made here a unique and vibrant actress.

It’s a great read.
