Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

Carrie.jpg

Daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, former wife of Paul Simon; you may already know quite a bit about this icon’s story. But this is an entertaining read, in particular the chapter about her family tree. It’s fascinating to see her lineage and the personalities involved. Her stories are amusing. She ingeniously relates the joys and complications of being Debbie Reynolds’s daughter.

The chapter about Carrie merging her own identity with that of Princess Leia was also hilarious. Actors understand that a line separates them from their characters, but Carrie doesn’t always seem to. This "mystification" makes for funnier stories! Check catalog for availability.
