Wishful Drinking

' Wishful Drinking is a touching and incisive account of bipolarity, addiction and motherhood.' Independent
'No motive is pure. No one is good or bad - but a hearty mix of both. And sometimes life actually gives to you by taking away.' Carrie Fisher in Wishful Drinking
In Wishful Drinking , Carrie Fisher told the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit.
Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabres." Alas, aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother (not to mention the hyperspace hairdo), Carrie also spends her free time 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 , and from 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.
Carrie Fisher's star-studded career included roles in numerous films such as The Blues Brothers and When Harry Met Sally . She was the author of four bestselling novels, Surrender in 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. Carrie's experience with addiction and mental illness - and her willingness to talk honestly about them - made her a sought-after speaker and respected advocate. She was truly one of the most magical people to walk among us.
Further praise for Carrie Fisher:-
[ Shockaholic ] is the finest, funniest chronicler of the maddest celebrity mores.' Sunday Times
'Fisher has a talent for lacerating insight that masquerades as carefree self-deprecation' Los Angeles Times
'She is one of the rare inhabitants of La-La Land who can actually write' New York Times
