Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Wishful Drinking, the very first autobiographical book by the late Carrie Fisher, the legendary actress. She's got several best-selling fictional novels behind her back, and it took her some time to tell the fans her own life story. The author talks about her appearance in a routine movie called Star Wars, the very first steps towards the podium and what it all meant for a young, innocent girl back in the day.
When she turned 19, Carrie became an international superstar. Today, she's an icon, and this book is your best chance to learn more about the incredible actress, brilliant writer, and, most importantly, amazing human being. It's deeply personal, moving, engaging and funny. You'll find yourself crying, laughing and crying again over these pages, even if you're not a big fan of the science fiction franchise.
Wishful Drinking is both insightful and thought-provoking, and the author's awesome writing style will make you forget about everything else in the world and focus on the narrative. This is Fisher looking at her life from a side and sharing everything she remembers. Not a lot of folks know that Carrie was the kid to a royal Hollywood fam, used to be married to Paul Simon (she dated him later) and had her pretty face on that legendary Princess Leia shampoo.
The greatest thing about Wishful Drinking is it's not pretending to be something it's not, and Fisher reveals the most ridiculous, funny, clumsy and weird facts about her life. This is a true, heartfelt, astounding story of a woman that will forever stay in our hearts and minds. Carrie's fans will definitely cry their eyes out reading this book!
