Growing up in the public eye, Carrie Fisher is hilariously candid about her life as the daughter of two famous stars and on becoming an icon herself.
Scandal has always followed Fisher’s life. Her mom was movie star Debbie Reynolds and her dad was crooner Eddie Fisher. They were the “It Couple” of their time until he left her for Elizabeth Taylor. As both her parents had many marriages, Fisher dove into drugs and had a few loves herself.
Fisher is honest from start to finish and knows how to laugh about her life. She loves her mother and daughter – actress Billie Lourd – and is flippant about her father. But what really resonates is her honesty about her drug addictions and how they affected her and her family’s life.
Final say: A fun and easy read. ★★★★★
