Celebrity Rehab

Wishful Drinking - Carrie Fisher B
Publication Date: September 2009

This one feels like a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless.  I actually didn't know much about Fisher's life, yet my weakness for scandal-ridden celebrity memoirs made this one too tempting to pass up.  The Princess Leia thing is interesting, however it is the substance abuse and her relationships (with Paul Simon and Bryan Lourd) that were most intriguing to me.   

Wishful Drinking is humbling, amusing and a little annoying.  But it is hard not to like Fisher, who I suspect left out some of the juicer bits and darker moments.
