Staff Reviews


Carrie Fisher is an actress, a geek icon, and a professional screw-up who does not hold back from her audience. She calls herself the product of “Hollywood incest” and never fails to find the humor in her life. My nerdy little heart can’t take the anticipation that is leading up to the publication of The Princess Diarist. Its secrets must be pretty juicy, as no one has yet been granted access to the book. In any case, it’s sure to be full of the wit and self-deprecation we expect from our foul-mouthed princess.                                                                —Ivy

Description


The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fisher's New York Times bestselling intimate, hilarious and revealing recollection of what happened behind the scenes on one of the most famous film sets of all time, the first Star Wars movie.

When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved--plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivet , and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.

With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher's intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time--and what developed behind the scenes. Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.
