Book Review: Wishful Drinking

Title Wishful Drinking
Carrie Fisher
Rating ****
Tags memoirs, carie fisher, humor

Carrie Fisher is the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher. It was an unusual upbringing, to say the least. Her father left when she was two and was not around most of the time. Her mother was an eccentric. Carrie also dealt with being bipolar and addicted to drugs and alcohol, a blast of fame at age nineteen thanks to George Lucas and Star Wars, a failed marriage to singer Paul Simon, another failed marriage to an agent who forgot to mention he was gay, and more. She tells it all with warmth, humor, and a high degree of self-analysis. Enjoyable, quick read.
