The Princess Diarist

Author(s): Carrie Fisher

Biography

"Fisher offers a thoughtful, sardonic meditation on the price of fame, cost-of-living adjustments included."--J.D. Biersdorfer, The New York Times Book Review


"Characteristically frank and unflinching, funny and true...The Princess Diarist is about a woman's relationship with desire--her own, and of others' for her--writ large, as large as Star Wars."--Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, Jezebel.com


"In her funny and frequently touching new memoir The Princess Diarist, the iconic Star Wars actress and author reveals the diaries she kept as a 19-year-old starring in the blockbuster sci-fi film.... It's an eye-opener for fans, but it also shows a gifted writer even at a young age. There was a lot going on between Princess Leia's hair buns."--Brian Truitt, USA Today


"There's tremendous insight into the volatile heart of a young woman, seen through the eyes of her wiser, older self still seeking her place in the universe."--Anthony Breznican, Entertainment Weekly


"Are you a woman who's ever fallen for a man who might fit this description? 'With him love was easier done than said/instead of taking you to heart he would take you to bed/and you take what he has to offer lying down/you're getting more involved while he's still getting around.' Yes? Read on...[The Princess Diarist] is a radical truth bomb."--Julia Felsenthal, VOGUE.com


"An unflinching, sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious look inside the mind of a 19-year-old actress in the throes of a Hollywood locationship."--Meredith Woerner, Los Angeles Times


"An unexpectedly emotional read."--The Verge


"Fisher [is] a force to be reckoned with, both on the page and in real life."--Heather Havrilevsky, Bookforum


"A frank, self-deprecating memoir...outspoken, honest commentary of what it's like to be Princess Leia on and off the screen."--Kirkus Reviews


"The Princess Diarist...is about the making of Star Wars in 1976, but it's definitely not for the kids -- a wry, witty look back through the diaries she kept at the time, its main event is her steamy affair with co-star Harrison Ford."--Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
