10 books of Carrie Fisher

Finally, after four hit novels, Carrie Fisher comes clean (well, sort of ) with the crazy truth that is her life in her first-­ever memoir. In, adapted from her one-­woman stage show, Fisher reveals what it was really like to grow up a product of "Hollywood in-­breeding,­" come of age on the set of a little movie called Star Wars, and become a cultural icon and bestselling action figure at the age of nineteen. Intimate, hilarious, and sobering, is Fisher, looking at her life as she best remembers it (what do you expect after electroshock therapy?­). It's an incredible tale: the child of Hollywood royalty -- Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher -- homewrecked by Elizabeth Taylor, marrying (then divorcing, then dating) Paul Simon, having her likeness merchandized on everything from Princess Leia shampoo to PEZ dispensers, learning the father of her daughter forgot to tell her he was gay, and ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed., the show, has been a . . .

Suzanne Vale, the Hollywood actress whose drug addictions and rehab rigors were so brilliantly dissected by Carrie Fisher in Postcards from the Edge, is back. And this time she has a new problem: She's had a child with someone who forgot to tell her he was gay. He forgot to tell her, and she forgot to notice. What's worse, Suzanne's not sure she has what it takes to be the best mother to her daughter, Honey. She can't seem to shake the blues from losing Honey's father, Leland, to Nick -- the man who got the man who got away. Or maybe those aren't the blues, just more symptoms of her sprawling multi-­symptom bipolar illness: an illness Suzanne can't bring herself to take all that seriously, no matter what her doctors say. (After all, how serious can an illness be whose symptoms are spending sprees, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity?­) And now, worst of all, under the watchful round eyes of the pills the doctors plied her with, even her friends are starting to find her a . . .

**THE NEW YORK TIMES-­BESTSELLING CULT CLASSIC NOVEL**
'I don't think you can even call this a drug. This is just a response to the conditions we live in.­'

Suzanne Vale, formerly acclaimed actress, is in rehab, feeling like 'something on the bottom of someone's shoe, and not even someone interesting'. Immersed in the sometimes harrowing, often hilarious unfolding of life in the drug hospital and wondering how she'll cope – and find work – back on the outside, she meets new patient Alex. Ambitious, good-­looking in a Heathcliff sort of way and in the grip of a monumental addiction, he makes Suzanne realize that, however eccentric her life might seem, there's always someone who's even closer to the edge of reason.

Carrie Fisher's New York Times-­bestselling debut novel is an uproarious commentary on Hollywood, the home of success, sex and insecurity, and has become a beloved cult classic.
