Well, this is the first book to rein in 2012. What started out as what some would say a bit to talk out ECT, speaks about more. So, before losing ALL sense of FULL memory, here is what some could call either an update or a sequel to/from Wishful Drinking, into the life of LEGENDARY, hilariously funny actress, Carrie Fisher. 

Starting with the journey that took to losing weight and becoming a famous spokesperson for Jenny Craig. She recounts dinner w/ Senator Chris Dodd in 1985. If he was going to sling bullshit at her since he was a senator and she went from drop-out to actress, she was going to sling it right back - both nice but undertow.
Carrie also talks about her strange connection & relationship w/ the late Michael Jackson. What gave them a bond and what they had in common to what made them friends - "The Princess And The King". Carrie also gives more of a somewhat description of what life was like w/ first stepfather and shoe tycoon, Harry Karl. Reading more of a detail than in Wishful Drinking

Father and Daughter
When it came to her dad, Eddie, neither her nor Todd seen him all that much growing up. Although acid induced, Carrie out-of-the-blue somehow remembered his number after so many years and called ex-stepfather Harry, which was worth it. After that she called her biological dad, Eddie. After that call, Carrie found him on her doorstep knocking. She delves into the beginning but essential relationship they shared as father/daughter. When her recently widowed father as the time from the death of Betty Lin, Eddie in turn wanted Carrie to give him everything that she wanted from him growing up - a parent's love. He needed her. What happened? She was there for him in a way he was never there for her/Todd. By the end, it turned out that the overseeing care of her dad had ultimately fallen onto her - Carrie. Whatever she did for him was because she wanted to! Not actually present when he passed, but she was THERE!

Carrie talks many years later about her relationship w/ ex-stepmother and LEGENDARY actress, Elizabeth Taylor. Carrie speaks funnily about being at Elizabeth's and pushed into Liz's pool - leaving the past where it should be! Soon after Carrie, Liz and her mom Debbie Reynolds returned to the relationship they were MEANT to have. A genuine friendship. Then when Carrie wrote 'These Old Broads' Liz and Debbie GENUINELY did have their shit together and the past to be REAL.

Here's something Carrie says to shed some light when you think about it - her parents weren't people in the traditional sense. They were stars before they had a chance for peopleness to form. The studio initially designed her mom into what a STAR is. So they never got to form into their OWN person.

Carrie delves GREATLY  into the Remarkably, touching and lasting memories that she shared w/ her dad in his final days.  When he died, she received something she never thought she would've. A reversal. She was the parent and Eddie was the child. A chance to care for him. Although she lost him, she was grateful that everyone connected at all. Through the experience of getting to know past Eddie Fisher - the persona, Carrie finally go to meet a man - but also her dad.

Here's MY Opinion:

This book shows you  - although they're not THERE, in the long run how empowering it can be/is if/when you have that connection that you've longed for!
