Finally, after four hit novels, Carrie Fisher comes clean with the crazy truth that is her life in her first-ever memoir. In this book, adapted from her one-woman stage show, Fisher reveals what it was really like to grow up a product of "Hollywood inbreeding," 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. The child of Hollywood royalty--Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, homewrecked by Elizabeth Taylor--married (then divorced, then dated) Paul Simon, had her likeness merchandised on everything from Princess Leia shampoo to PEZ dispensers, learned the father of her daughter forgot to tell her he was gay, and ultimately woke up one morning and found a friend dead beside her in bed. This is Carrie Fisher at her best--revealing her worst.--From publisher description.
