Wishful Drinking

This next book is the complete/full TRUE to form story of actress/author Carrie Fisher. Stemming from GENUINE Hollywood royalty, Carrie talks candidly about what life was like growing up as the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher from her own reflection of family tales.

She later recalls tales from Debbie to stories of her most notorious character, in which she made a NAME outside of her family name: Princess Leia of the original Star Wars genre. P.S. - just imagine that 1974 was the FIRST to introduce us to Carrie (on her own) and exploding from there! She goes into her relationship w/ singer and ex-husband Paul Simon. It was soon after that she goes behind into writing 'Postcards From The Edge'. Going out to LA to film the movie was really bad for relationship with Paul.

After they parted and went their separate ways, Carrie met and started a relationship with talent agent, Bryan Lourd.  They have a daughter, Billie Catherine. But it was soon after that Bryan reveled to Carrie that he was gay. She had turned him gay - like a superpower. Quoted by Carrie "She makes them bald, she turns them gay, her work is done!" It was about a year after her breakup with Bryan that she checked herself into a mental hospital and was diagnosed as bipolar. She also talks about time w/ Cary Grant.

She also shares stories of her and Billie and the lessons she was able to pass on!

 Carrie wrote this book in 2008 and in 2010 HBO aired       a documentary of the same title based on this book's publication. Wishful Drinking
