    About :

    A woman who had the world in her hands
    Or at least it seemed for those who had
    Watched Star Wars, fantasized about or wanted to be her
    Talking about Princess Lea, actually more like Carrie Fisher

    I just finished listening to her read her book Wishful Drinking
    Her observations and reminiscing of her life had me laughing
    But also there was a hint of sadness and madness entangled
    In her words, as she laid it all out for us, so she could be heard

    Her parents, celebrities, hopping beds, with each other and others
    Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, a little eccentric and oh so gorgeous
    Her father Eddie Fisher, a popular artist and also a womanizer
    And her brother who did not have the same hangups as her

    She had many romances but married only once to Paul Simon
    A daughter, Billie Lourd, whose father was Fisher's talent agent
    Talks about her relationships not only with her husband and lovers
    But also with her mother, brother, stepfather and even grandmother

    What a wild ride her life had been
    Substance abuse, depression, dead friend in bed, that's only the beginning
    She wrote this at 52, and now I'm keen
    To look out for her other books, four more it seems

    I'd recommend you check this book out
    In fact, grab the audio version, guaranteed you'll laugh out loud
