Description du produit

Revue de presse

‘In her candid and hilarious autobiography, Carrie reveals the bizarre secrets of her Hollywood upbringing’
Mail on Sunday 23/11
‘Wishful Drinking should be read as an account, as touching and incisive as any, of bipolarity, addiction and motherhood’
Independent 12/12
‘She has a wonderful self-deprecating wit and total lack of self-pity – there is none of the I Will Survive grandiosity one expects from Hollywood memoirs’
The Times 13/12

‘What makes Wishful Drinking remarkable is that it is, as far as I can make out, the invention of a whole new, and very specialised, literary genre’
The Times 13/12

‘What a joy to watch Fisher on screen! And she writes precisely as she looks: like a continually fresh and bold idea’
Sunday Times 14/12
'It's a classic Hollywood tale … but also a complete one-off … the stories come thick and fast … hysterically funny' Scotland on Sunday

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabres." Alas, aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother (not to mention the hyperspace hairdo), Carrie also spends her free time battling addiction and weathering the wild ride of manic depression. It's an incredible tale - from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother, to marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, and from having the father of her daughter leave her for a man, to ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed.

Livre sympa et agréable à lire mais je m'attendais à avoir des anecdotes sur Star Wars. Au final, seulement des histoires sur son enfance, sa famille, mais très peu sur son métier. Il faut achter The Princess Diarist je suppose.

C'est dur d'être fille de stars (Debbie Reynolds & Eddie Fisher) et d'en avoir épousée (Paul Simon).
C'est vraiment très dur d'avoir eu une vie matérielle facile.
Alors on picole et on se drogue.
Et on raconte longuement tout ça dans x livres.
Et moi, le lecteur, je m'ennuie.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Give it a chance 26 novembre 2016
Par Whistlers Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This author is an alcoholic and I am a bookaholic. When I start reading a book, I compulsively continue it, even if it's God-awful and I hate it. This unfortunate quirk has caused me many a boring hour, but in this case I owe it a debt of gratitude.

Which is a way of saying that the giddy, girly style of writing in the first chapter almost drove me insane. Nothing but my reluctance to abandon a book kept me going. But then a miracle happened and the writing (while informal and still WAY too full of whimsy) settled down. By the second chapter, I was glued to Fisher's weird family diagram (parents, sibling, spouses, step-parents, half-siblings, step-siblings, actresses, actors, singers, agents, artists, beauty queens, and a respected Chinese-American author) and laughing hysterically. Welcome to Hollywood.

This is not a book you read to find out "what happened." Unless you've been living in a cave, you know all about Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher and Carrie Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton and Cary Grant and Paul Simon. Their lives may not have been any more troubled or eventful than many private citizens, but they were lived in full view of the public. Old style Hollywood with its carefully groomed stars and jealously guarded publicity may be a thing of the past, but the celebrity machine is still cranking away even more furiously than when Eddie Fisher caused an international scandal by dumping his wholesome wife and marrying Liz Taylor (who soon dumped HIM and married Richard Burton.) Who cares? A lot of people, judging from the ink that was wasted on reporting every detail.

Fisher herself grew up the daughter of two celebrities and became one herself at the tender age of 19 when she played Princess Leia in the Star Wars series. She married a famous singer and then an agent, had a daughter, wrote books, and performed one-woman shows. She also abused drugs and alcohol, attended AA meetings, was in and out of mental hospitals, was diagnosed as bi-polar, and underwent electroshock therapy. You could say she's lived a "full life."

I'm disinterested in the entertainment industry and in celebrities in general, and yet Fisher is an appealing woman. She comes across as brutally honest, especially about her own problems and mistakes. You get the impression of someone who has been through so much craziness that she has both developed an inner toughness and been stripped of the need to hide her defects and weaknesses.

I read this book or a version of it years ago and remembered being impressed. I was happy to find the Kindle version and enjoyed re-reading it. I think it's a valuable story. No, most of us didn't grow up in Beverly Hills, but most of our lives have been touched by addiction and mental illness. In the end, this isn't a story of a celebrity. It's a story of a woman and how she's dealt with her problems.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I was too sad to go to bed so I bought this book ... 29 décembre 2016

I bought this book the day after Carrie's death, about an hour after I learned of her mother's death. I was too sad to go to bed so I bought this book instead. And read it straight through.

I'm glad I did.

"Postcards from the Edge" was my only prior impression of the relationship these two women had. This memoir paints a very different picture. I am sorry the world has lost these two brilliant and beautiful souls, but I am glad for them both that they still have each other.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Upbeat Hollywood tale of survival, light on suffering, long on humor 30 décembre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Not a life-changing memoir but a life-affirming one, with a sharp, honest recounting of actress/author Carrie Fisher's life. In turns funny and bawdy, she never asks for pity, but goes at it like a true recovered addict: all her pain digested into humor, but never denied. I suffer from similar issues and found her believable and illuminating and empowering. There is nothing poetic or soaring about this book, just a fellow journeyman telling their bittersweet tale of survival. And that is more than enough.

I could not put the book down! Carrie Fisher lived an incredible life and has done an amazing job of explaining what it feels like to be bipolar. To have survived with this undiagnosed disorder in the world that she lived in amongst all of the "movie stars" was nothing less than heroic. Hopefully it will bring to light that being bipolar is a disease like hypertension and diabetes_ something that can be treated and not something to have to be ashamed of. Kudos to Carrie Fisher. May she rest in peace.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A manic, yet thoroughly enjoyable partial autobiography 11 décembre 2016
Par soccerjude - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Repurposing material she covered in her eponymous tour, this book covers a few choice anecdotes from Carrie Fisher's life, focusing heavily on some bizarre experiences--and some of the fallout from her drug use. It's highly readable and often funny, although it only scratches the surface of a woman who is clearly way more than just a pretty face.
