Author Biography

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 Brothers, When 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 Drinking, Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The 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--have made her a sought-after speaker and respected advocate.

Review

"Smart and funny...the pages crackle with one-liners" Guardian "It's an eye-opener for fans, but it also shows a gifted writer even at a young age. There was a lot going on between Princess Leia's hair buns." USA Today "An unflinching, sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious look inside the mind of a 19-year-old ... It's invasive, juicy, sad, nostalgic and gripping all at once. It's as if you've knocked the lock off of your cooler older sister's journal and discovered she's been sleeping with the hottest boy in school this whole time." LA Times "Fisher offers a thoughtful, sardonic meditation on the price of fame, cost-of-living adjustments included." -- J.D. Biersdorfer The New York Times Book Review "[The Princess Diarist] is a radical truth bomb" -- Julia Felsenthal VOGUE.com
