Turning to the first of her short memoirs I was faced with some of Carrie Fisher s most interesting sentiments and humorous anecdotes detailing a life about which I knew very little Fisher adds as an opening disclaimer that she underwent electro convulsive therapy ECT which erased some of her past memories so things within these pages might not be as clear or succinct as their actual occurrences Born in the worst possible situation the offspring of two Hollywood stars Carrie Fisher found herself in the middle of the most complex family tree imaginable With Eddie Fisher an apparently famous crooner of the 1950s and Debbie Reynolds famous Hollywood starlet at a young age as parents Fisher was forced to live in their blinding glory and make a name for herself However as with many star studded couples her parents moved on to bigger and better things leaving her as a child of divorce Does she use this excuse to explain away her decision to turn to drugs and alcohol Not at all or at least no than any other child Fisher tells of a life both in Los Angeles and New York following her mother along her successful but fading career before she ended up on the set of Star Wars at nineteen and carving out a name for herself This single character Princess Leia has permeated Fisher s very being and she was forever unable to shake its presence Pulling out some stories about her interactions with George Lucas to explain why wearing a bra on set would not make scientific sense her brief marriage to Paul Simon and eventually marrying a man who got her pregnant and eventually announced that he was gay Fisher takes the reader through a whirlwind tour of some of her most memorable moments all surrounding an ever increasing dependence on pills psychiatrists and flashes of fame An interesting smattering of thoughts and memories instilled with enough humour to leave the reader feeling this is an extended comedy dialogue Fisher presents something to tide the reader over between larger and substantial reading assignments Funny for what it is but not a stellar piece for those seeking an in depth exploration of Carrie Fisher s lifeSome might wonder why I am reading Carrie Fisher after I panned her two novels so recently I knew what I was getting into with this book and it delivered precisely what I expected While I might have preferred something linear I found myself interested in all the adventures follies and downright stupidity that crossed Fisher s path I knew her only as Princess Leia though I was not one to plaster posters upon my wall and so all of this proved both intriguing and even a little entertaining Fisher does not try to gussy up her writing or her stories They are precisely as she remembers them though she does remind the reader of her ECT throughout the piece which acts as a means to understand some of the random commentaries found herein Engaging and even a little provocative Fisher serves her purpose by presenting this piece the first in what became a series We shall see what else comes to pass as the Force flows through me for the other two memoir ish publicationsKudos Madam Fisher for entertaining and intriguing me A nice appetizer before I delve into a month of hard going biographiesLovehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at

DOWNLOAD ô Wishful Drinking Itutions It's an incredible tale from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother to marrying and divorcing Paul Simon 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. I loved Carrie Fisher she was an icon of my youth She was also smart funny and courageousHer death saddened me so much She should have had years ahead of her She and we were deprived of her wit and intelligence Her witness to surviving mental illness and addictionI read this book in honor of her and to feel her presence again The book is as funny poignant and funny as you would expect It read like lightening and was over too soonJust like Carrie Fisher s life

DOWNLOAD ô Wishful Drinking In Wishful Drinking Carrie Fisher tells 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. When the original Star Wars trilogy came out I was too young to have nurtured any grotty pubescent fantasies about Princess Leia though I guess by the time of Return of the Jedi I was old enough to be confusedly excited by those harem scenes with Jabba the Hutt But now that I ve read Wishful Drinking I kind of want Carrie Fisher for my girlfriend Except that she s my mother s age And she s a recovering alcoholicdrug addict with bipolar disorder and a lavishly messed up family Other than that though she s really great she s smart as a whip wickedly funny and she swears like a teamster whatever that isAll the same I definitely wouldn t want her for a daughter or even a distant cousin When it comes to her family s dirty laundry of which there are piles and piles lying around hopelessly soiled she s not what you d call the soul of discretion My father is beyond likeable I mean you would just love him My father also smokes four joints a day Not for medical reasons So I call him Puff Daddy But he is just adorable There s a reason he got all that high uality pussy except for the Miss Louisiana thing and anyone can make one mistakeHow often do you find the word father and the phrase high uality pussy in the same paragraph Right not very And it takes a special kind of daughter to describe her mother s sexual orientation in the following terms Not that it matters but my mother is not a lesbian She s just a really really bad heterosexual I m not exactly up on Hollywood tell alls so maybe I m overlooking some classics of the genre but I don t imagine there d be that many celebrities out there who are blessed with either Fisher s command of the American vernacular or her healthy perspective on her own fame Speaking of graves I tell my younger friends that one day they ll be at a bar playing pool and they ll look up at the television set and there will be a picture of Princess Leia with two dates underneath and they ll say awww she said that would happen And they ll go back to playing poolOr there s this You know what s funny about death I mean other than absolutely nothing at all You d think we could remember finding out we weren t immortal Sometimes I see children sobbing in airports and I think Aww They ve just been told See that s clever but isn t it also just the teensiest bit profound Okay not Schopenhauer profound but still Wishful Drinking is fluff I guess in the sense that it won t change your life or even your lunch break But it s good witty fluff True Fisher s relentless wisecracking starts to sound needy and defensive after a while he said casually lobbing a rock from his glass house but I think it s to her credit that despite her freakish Hollywood existence she s still human enough to laugh at herself Come to think of it what could be freakish than that a human being in Hollywood It must get awfully lonely for her
